There is no sense stating the ring should have been included with Canon's EF 100mm f/2.8L MACRO IS USM Lens because it wasn't! That said your alternative is to go on the hook for well over $200. for the ring. It is precision made and a quality product. As one would expect, at this price, it fits perfectly on the lens. Although simple to use once you figure out how to open the ring for mounting on the lens you would think a brief instruction sheet or something would have been included. Think again. You'll receive the ring packed in a styrofoam sleeve inside a Canon box. The ring instructions albeit brief are in the manual included with the lens. If you are serious about MACRO photography i.e. using a tripod, then this becomes a required item. Bottom line, love the product, hate the price.

PRODUCT QUALITY: This tripod mount ring "D" for the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens is the same high quality as Canon's tripod mount rings that are *included* with the more expensive L-series lenses.

PRODUCT USE: This tripod ring easily mounts on the lens, and holds it very securely and with improved balance.

PRODUCT DRAWBACK: If you use a battery grip mounted on your Canon body, and you use a tripod quick-release adapter (such as the Manifrotto), you should note this:

Because of the ring's proximity on the lens, which is very close to the camera body, mounting it on a tripod or monopod with a quick-release adapter is not so quick.

In the open position, the quick release lever comes into contact with the battery grip, preventing it from attaching the camera/lens to the tripod.

The quick work-around is to simply loosen the ring, rotate the camera counter-clockwise 90° (i.e., portrait) and the camera will mount appropriately. I tested this using both a 5D Mark II and a T2i.

If the quick work-around doesn't work with your specific camera body, the second work-around probably will ...

This work-around is to mount the lens on your tripod first, then attach the body to the lens. Removing it from the tripod requires the same action in reverse: remove the body from the lens, then remove the lens using the quick-release lever.

If you're working in a controlled environment, such as a studio, this is but a bit of inconvenience and clunky. On the other hand, if you're on location, especially in windy or dusty conditions, the drawbacks should be obvious.

Having paid $850 for Canon's new 100mm L macro when first anounced and released in 2009, I was underwhelmed to find that it did not include a tripod collar. $240 MSRP for a tripod collar!? No thanks - I'll deal with the frustration of reorienting verticals on a tripod and pocket the cash. Luckily, I was able to pick this one up in used (like new) condition on Amazon's marketplace for a fraction of that cost at $120, and I suggest you try and do the same(or on craig's list, ebay, etc.)

There's not much to review to be honest. Those of you looking for a tripod collar for your new L macro probably know exactly what it's for, and need to buy this. Those asking themselves *what* this is for and *if* they need one, probably don't.

Canon's new L macro doesn't neceessarily need a tripod collar, as the balance is fine when mounted to my 5D, attached to a tripod head. Where this collar shines is in the following situations:

1) When you need to quickly change vertical/horizontal orientations in macro focussing conditions. Without this accessory, you would have to reset all your tripod/head positions just to change to a vertical orientation - an excercise in frustration for close-up/macro photography.

2) Balance when using extension tubes/extender: I frequently use a 1.4x II extender along with extension tubes for greater working distance and/or magnification. Adding extra weight and length to the lens can start to create balance issues as your rig becomes front heavy from all the extra attachments. The tripod collar helps alleviate most of that problem by moving the center of gravity towards the middle of your rig, instead of at the base of your camera body.

This tripod mount is great. I have it for the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro lens. I really vacillated over buying it. I was taking macro shots with a tripod that really pushed the limits of the tripod wobble at the point of the head. Finally after that shoot I just decided to buy the tripod mount and see how well I would like it.

I was very happy after a few weeks. I still feel a little sick for paying two hundred dollars for a tripod mount, but it does go a long way to help with composing the shots and switching between portrait and landscape orientation. I got the lens for about one hundred dollars less than retail so I justified the cost as being one hundred dollars over the standard retail price. I also use this on a monopod and that helps maintain stability at slower shutter speeds near 1:1 as well. Image Stability only goes so far when your working aperture is f/8 and you're only 1.5 feet from your subject. I would tell everyone to get one of these - even though the price is really ridiculous. Maybe Canon isn't making much of a margin on their lenses so they have to compensate by making a larger margin on the accessories.
