I was shooting a baseball game with my 70-200 2.8 when my mounting ring became stiff and make sounds as if something were scraping inside. So I took off the ring and one of the tiny little silver screws had come out and naturally fell into the abiss of the grass where I was standing.

I was wondering if anyone else has ever lost one of those little buggers....:cry:

Hadn't had that happened to me but I can see how that can happen.

Is it a common screw that you can get from a local hw store or it's "CANON" only kinda screw.

Guess you're screwed :) hahaa.

I work at a fastener distributorship - believe me, there is no such thing as a proprietary screw. If someone makes it, we can get it. :lol:

Heheheh.
