        Using this collar on the 70-300mm lens has definitely improved the stability for both portrait and landscape shots. Very good investment at a very reasonable price. Would give 5 stars except for bulking up equipment on already bulky lens.

        I bought this ring to use on my monopod for long shooting days and I put it through it's paces for the first time at the Lone Star LeMans race in Austin, TX last weekend.Functionally, the ring does what it's supposed to do, but I do not like the mechanism for the clamp. It does not stay closed fully and even when it is, the ring moves around the camera easily. While shooting, I could feel the camera turning inside the ring. There is a layer of felt glued to the inside of the ring and as a result I'll need to remove and replace that or enhance the interface somehow. If the price difference between this and the Canon version weren't so significant, I'd have just bought the Canon. But, at $[$]?

            It feels solid and balanced well enough on my 7D, fits the lens snugly, i feel not slipping at all. Appreciate the extra safety on the knob that the lens won't fall out. Price is very good value.

                Like others, I have balked at the $ price for the Canon lens collar. Thus far (2 shoots), no complaints with this collar. Secure on the lens, has a pin-lock so the collar can't accidentally open, easy to loosen to turn the camera into vertical orientation. Solid on the monopod. Excellent performance to dollar ratio.

                      This collar works but there is a little bit of wiggle, even after knob is tightened. Still makes the balance of the lens and camera much better so it's a keeper.

                          Bought this Tripod collar for my 70-300L Canon Lens. A lot cheaper than Canon's version and it does the same job. I was impressed with the color match and thickness of the metal. I highly recommend this to anyone in need of one.
