    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.
