I'm shopping for an alternative (i.e. ebay) tripod collar for the lens. I did a quick search and it looks like it can be a hit/miss. Any recommendations? thanks.

I bought a third-party lens collar. (reaches for it from shelf...)

Hmm, has "JCC TRIPOD MOUNT RING TR-2" on the base beside the knob. Checks Amazon order:

Ah:

Cowboystudio Tripod Collar Mount Ring for Canon for the EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, MP-E65mm f/2.8 & EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM lenses

ASIN: B003CIRD5C

http://www.amazon.com/​gp/product/B003CIRD5C (external link)

It's OK. Plastic build seems strong enough for how I would use it - not as robust as the OEM Canon ring mounts for the 100-400L, in comparison.

The fit is very exacting on my T3i: the ring basically has one position where the hinge doesn't interfere with the internal flash protrusion on the camera body while still providing a flat mount to keep the camera level in landscape mode.

It is a little awkward to mount: it uses an inner slip-ring that grips the lens body then the main ring slips onto that with nobbins to keep it aligned. If the knurled knob is a little loose it can slowly slip off.

It adds just enough bulk to the lens to make it awkward to pack.

Nonetheless, it does help balance the lens+body combo a bit better.

I use it for a while, get annoyed and remove it, then put it back on. Repeat cycle.

IMHO, YMMV,
