Tripod collar 70-200mm F/4 IS II

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


I need a tripod collar for my new 70-200mm F/4 IS II ... do you know if there is any 3rd party solution in the market? Canon's collar seems to be top quality but is quite expensive. 


Thank you all in advance

I read a review that advised that one can use the 70-200 MkI tripod mount on the new lens without an issue.  The only difference is a slight change in colour.  So, armed with that I went to Ebay and for the HUGE investment of around $8 US, I got one shipped to me and it has worked perfectly - I can live with the colour differential.


I might note that when buying on Ebay or any other auction site I look very carefully at the number of trades the vendor has made and their approval level.
