Question the DA15 ltd lens hood and Z-Pro filters

I need some advice. I want to buy the DA15 Ltd but was wondering if the lens hood can be removed. If not, would it cause any problems attaching the Cokin Z-Pro adapter rings and holder? I spent a lot of money on LEE filters and really hope it won't be an issue. Looking at the pictures on the DA15 it seems that it may cause an issue. Has anyone used the Z-Pro rings or any others with the DA15? Thanks

The hood does get in the way of my Cokin "P" system. I have to use a step-down ring to extend beyond the hood in order to screw in the filter holder. Some vignetting occurs.

That's what I thought. I guess I'll have to look at the DA12-24 if I can get my hands on one. Very disappointed :-(
