DFA* 70-200 hood on the FA* 80-200?

Does anyone own both of these lenses? Can anyone verify if the DFA* lens hood will fit on the FA* lens? The DFA hood is the PH-RBM77, while the FA hood is the PH-RBC77, so I figured there might be chance that it would fit, and thus solve one of the major shortcomings of the FA* lens. I'm carefully considering both lenses, but I really don't relish the thought of the reversed zoom and focus rings on the modern lens.

I can confirm that the DA* 300/200 hood can be modified to fit. It fits fine as is as long as the autofocus clutch is disengaged. It is longer and I only ever used it on APSC so I cannot think that it will work without some risk of vignetting on the lens - it is also round not a tulip. But it is a potential source of a bayonet lens hood for that lens.

It doesn't fit. In any case, in my opinion the image quality of the D FA* is so far ahead of the FA* that it's a no-brainer, unless you want a more compact lens, of course.
