    Tri-pod mounts

    Wondering if any members can point me to a link or suggest a supplier who sells "NON-GENUINE" Canon tri-pod mounts to suit a Canon 70-200f4L lens?
    I have done a couple of brief searches on the internet with no success at all, the mount would only be used rarely so I don't think the expense of the genuine item is warranted. If anyone has one on AP which they are prepared to sell I might be interested in that also?

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    G'day Richard

    I had this 'problem' a decade ago with my 100-300 lens, couldn't get an OEM one easily or at reasonable cost
    Went to a local 'small-job shop', fella with a lathe and a few tools, who measured the lens barrel, etc etc and made up a collar from a nylon block, beautifully made, tripod screw inset on the bottom ... worked beautifully
    Cost me about $55 I think, money well spent at the time

    dunno whether this will help - hope so
    Regards, Phil
