It's a good collar from the stability point of view, also considering the max. focal length which is limited. But as time goes on, the locking mechanism is becoming loose. Almost two years ago I dropped the lens and cracked it in two parts, because I failed to fasten the lock. I'm starting to fear that now it could open on its own.


So I figured out I could just buy a replacement. How much could cost, after all? I thought 70-80 €.


Well... 220 $, indeed:





Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm ƒ/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm ƒ/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm ƒ/2.8, Samyang 8mm ƒ/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm ƒ/2 
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.

I had found a 70-400 G1 with no tripod collar for dirt cheap. I think the quote was 400$ or so for the tripod collar and I don't really want that lens without a collar, so had to pass on it :(.
