    Obtained an old Tamron SP 500mm recently, the version without the tripod collar. When using on an NEX-6, I'm not too keen on the weight/balance. Looked for alternative collars (requires a largish 82mm internal diameter) to no avail. An adapter with integral tripod collar like this seems ideal: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120787432239?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ss

    I don't however wish to buy from a seller in China if I can help it...

    Anyone know of another source for that, or can suggest equally affordable alternatives?

    FWIW, as an update, I didn't go for the adapter with the integral collar, as I thought it'd still be too uneven, weight wise and would preclude use of the Zhongyi Lens Turbo 2.

    Ended up getting a £9 diecast metal collar with approx. 72mm internal diameter to fit over the Tamron Adaptall 2 adaptor, adding a silicone wristband along with some felt-like material to ensure a tight fit.
