hmm obvious question, I'm sure, but where do I get an arca-compatible foot for the tripod mount?

I've seen a few come and go in the BS and on Craigslist. I usually just use a flat plate that was made for a 5D.

Great photo. And it looks like some serious chop out there. Pretty windy today?

Great surf shot above. And the night portrait is cool, too.

Yea, I'm really enjoying the IS. I had a 24-105 for a while but didn't use it much. I'm sure I'll appreciate the IS much more on this one. I can get 1/4 sec sharp @ 200mm on the monopod. SWEET.

erh a lens that costs a couple thousand $ and then a tripod made for a point and shoot :) sorry but couldnt resist why not get a tripod thats sturdy enough to handle such set up?

I am guilty as charged and looked at a tripod well over HK$ 2500 yesterday.....didnt buy yet though.

Heh I have a $800 Gitzo/Markins setup and I don't want to pay $70 for the right plate. :mad:

Okay, I now officially feel stupid. I don't know about Hoff, but I thank you for this.

And I should have made the connection, as I've watched folks with their 100-400s on monopods keep their collars loose so the camera rotates as they move.

Meh. I don't like how the tripod collar attaches on this lens compared to the 200 prime. The 200 prime is really smooth as it rotates around and you can take it off without un-mounting the lens.

Otherwise, I'm glad I bought it :D
