Finally managed to track down a Nikon HN22 lens hood today and it fits perfectly to the PA62 - the combination looks just right with the FZ.I can finally stop using the 72mm Pana hood+filter. I'll post a pic as soon as I can.

This hood may work with the wide end (i.e., 35mm); however, it is too shallow for the tele end. You may easily get flare when the lens is at 3X and up. A collapsible hood may be a much better option if you wish to avoid flare at the long focal end. See the "Lens Hood" page of my FZ-10 user guide.

Thanks for the reply and I have been using your guide quiet a bit. I was looking for large lens hood after reading your guide but wasn't sure about a collapsable hood. Do you know of any fixed hoods that would work at the long focal length ? If not I'll still go out and get a collapsable hood as theyre not that expensive.
