Just got my new 70-200 f/2.8 MK II.

Wow!

Just curious - what is the correct Tripod Collar for this lens? Is it a Type B (W) or Type A?

What came with your new lens? I can't find an item number for this part.

Thanks

Rummage around, it should be in the box. The EF 70-200/2.8 II comes with a collar. It's the B(W).

I got my new 70-200 2.8 II about 1 month ago. Mine came with a tripod collar. Look around in the box, it should be in there. If it is not in the box you mite want to find out what happened since it comes with it.

A t'pod ring should have been included with your lens. The tripod ring designation should be printed right on the back side of the tripod mount... has been on every one I've seen.

In case it's not, I'm pretty sure the Mark II uses the same Tripod Mounting Ring B (W) that the original 70-200/2.8 IS uses. The same is used on the 70-200/2.8 non IS, 300/4 IS, 100-400 IS and possibly some other, discontinued lenses.

The "W" indicates the white painted version. The black (B) version of the Tripod Ring B is used on the 180/3.5L macro, 100/2.8 USM macro, MP-E 65mm macro.

The Tripod Ring A II (B) is sold as a separate accessory for use on the 200/2.8L.

Tripod Ring A II (W) is separately available accessory for use on 70-200/4L lenses. It's also the ring provided with 400/4.5L

The Tripod Ring C (W II) is sold as a separate accessory for the 70-300L IS.

The Tripod Ring D (B) is sold separately as an optional accessory for the 100/2.8L IS Macro.

The genuine Tripod mounting ring for the Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8 IS II lens is P/N YG9-0263-120.

I also removed mine until I realized that I didn't feel comfortable when placing the body/lens/hood on rough surfaces (concrete) which I sometimes have to do.

I then replaced the collar.
This will probably work out fine until I knock it off the collar and the whole thing slides or rolls to the floor.

If I have to put the camera down it goes in the bag. I'm funny that way but it's just one of my habits. BTW, the ring from the 100-400 also sits in the box. At this point I can justify the cost of a lens that I would need to leave the ring on.

Oh yeah... A bag. That's second on my list. First is a good tripod. And leaving my Christmas wish list out in the open probably isn't going to work this year either. :confused:

I seem to remember the (W) = white, and that (B) = black.

I think mine doesn't know which way to swing.
