Discussion in 'Adapted Lenses' started by shaolin95, Aug 24, 2013.
Just wondering if anyone can recommend a tripod collar for this heavy best.
There are aftermarket tripod collars but it may be difficult to find one that fits your lens. An alternative is to buy an adapter with a tripod mount, like this one. I'm not endorsing this seller specifically, it just came up in the eBay search as the cheapest option.
I made one to Tamron 54B. Used a generic tripod collar (7 USD) and thin leather as a shim. I was in luck as a cheap collar was almost right size and larger. Most of these aftermarket tripod collars are more expensive than adapters with tripod mount. Collar is more versatile.
