Great Gear

Althought the Canon EF 70-200 f4L IS USM is light enough to be used without this, I fail to understand why it's not included with the lens. The slight additional cost this might add to the lens purchase would more than offset the hassle of having to order it after the fact.

rugged and useful, but over-priced

I use this with the Canon 20D, 70-200mm f4L IS, and flashpoint 2560 monopod. Sometimes with the canon 1.4x II TC as well. I mount so the "toe" points forward when using just the 20D and 70-200 f4, and flip the ring backwards when using the 1.4x II TC. Works great at keeping the camera balanced on the monopod and allows for camera rotation for portrait shots. The contstruction is all metal with a plastic insert to keep from scratching the lens. The big issue is value. Almost identical produc...

Excellent Product

By

from Ontario, Canada

Fits perfectly, turns smoothly and locks securely on my 400mm. f/5.6 lens. It's expensive, but worth the price. I tried the Vello brand but was disappointed with the fit and operation.

Very Good Product.

The Canon Tripod Mount Ring is a must when using a Tripod or Monopod. It is expensive but has good built quality to match Canon L Lenses.

Canon quality; does the job well

By

from Fullerton, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this adapter on a Manfrotto 682B self-standing monopod when I cannot use a tripod. The camera (Eos 7d) and lens (70-200mm f/4L) is better-balanced when mounted at the lens which allows the use of the self-standing feature of the monopod. My only real negative (not worth a star demotion) is that the adapter is expensive, and should be supplied with the lens -- perhaps Canon could increase the cost of the lens by half of what this unit costs separately, and include the adapter with the lens).

Solid alternative to the original

By

from Leominster, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this product primarily to hold the 70-200mm f/4L USM IS lens to a monopod. It appears to be just as strong and well built as the original Canon ring. It lacks the quick release (you have to unscrew it all the way to get the ring off) but considering all else it is a quality product. Fit is great and the liner is soft on the lens.

Solid product buy way way too expensive

By

from San Jose, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This ring is indeed an excellently manufactured article. With that said, I see no reason that is should cost so much. I'v tried cheaper ring(s) but they were made of plastic and metal as opposed to all metal. I ended up coughing of the cash for this one. I will say that this ring is rock-solid and I have no fear of breakage or deterioration of materials. I do feel that Canon should have included the ring with the lens.

Worth the investment.

By

from Pinellas Park, FL  -  Casual Photographer

I bought the Canon 70-200 USM IS F4L Zoom Lens. This is an excellant addition to the Lens (since it doesn't come with a Tripod Mount). The mount makes it easier to properly balance the Lens-Camera combination on a MonoPod or TriPod. Using the screw mount on the camera biases the weight to the lens, making it difficult to be steady and consistent. The ability to position the mount either toward or away from the camera allows you to maintain the center of balance when using the lens with or without an extender Easily worth the investment to go along with the Lens.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JEFF M  I needed a tripod mount and had poor results with the much cheaper Chinese clones. I also feel better knowing all the camera equipment is mounted on a Canon mount. Even though it is horrendously overpriced.
Shopper  HOW DO YOU USE THE RING?
MICHAEL C  It's used with either a monopod or tripod. The ring attaches to the monopod or tripod. The ring also goes around the lens. The knob on the ring allow you to 'lock' the lens in place. By using the ring you can easily rotate the lens (and attached camera) back and forth between horizontal and vertical shots.
Shopper  does this part fit the 70-200mm f/2.8 L (non IS version)?
DONALD P  NO. The 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses are bigger in diameter and require a different tripod collar. The box inscription says it fits these lenses: 1) 70-200mm f/4 L (non-IS) 2) 70-200mm f/4L IS 3) 300mm f/4 L (non-IS) 4) 400mm f/5.6 L
