I'm picking up a copy of the 80-200 f/2.8L soon, but it doesn't come with the tripod collar. Anyone know what model tripod collar it uses and where I can get one?

you can pick them up on B&H, calumetphoto, and adorama online. just search "canon tripod collar" and check your results for the correct one. you might not like the price...

I've seen much more affordable third party collars available on ebay. I have no idea what they're like or how good they are though.

It's the same one (barring colour in some cases) as is used on both 70-200 f/4 L lenses, the 200mm f/2.8 L, the 300mm f/4 L (non-IS version only) and 400mm f/5.6 L. It's known as the Canon Tripod Ring A.

Great, thanks. That's exactly the information I was looking for. I did find the ones on B&H, and no, I didn't like the price :(. I'll take a look on ebay for one. Anyone have any experience with ebay tripod collars?

I had the pipe and it was a dream. I wasn't very good without IS and I was concerned about servicing. It felt really nice to hold... a great weight, in my opinion. I don't know about others, but I really liked the way it handled colors. Strange you're getting it without a collar, because I've not seen any without one.

Where, may I ask?

I checked eBay and Craigslist and found nothing. eBay had some tripod collars.

I also find it funny that they released an 80-200 f/4-5.6. I'm guessing it was the first consumer EF telephoto at the time, but I'm just so used to knowing that the consumer lenses get 100mm more reach that I have to give up when I upgrade to the professional 2.8 lenses.

The tripod collars I found on ebay were all white. I found a black one that I linked to in my last post, but I'm not sure of the quality.

Most of the ones I see for sale come with the collar, but the seller said he bought it secondhand and it didn't come with one when he bought it. It comes with a kenko 2x extender though, so it's still a decent deal since the lens itself is in excellent shape.

Tripod Ring B is too big - Tripod Ring A should be the correct one.

Let me know when you get it. I might pick it up too since it's one of the only black ones I can find that doesn't cost over $100 :(.

The seller put it up on ebay for me so I could get the cashback. After cashback it came out to $625 shipped. It's a pretty good deal imo, since the lens itself is in excellent shape (no scratches, dings, always had a uv filter on), and it comes with the kenko 2x extender (also in excellent shape), the uv filter, and of course the front and back caps.
