Is there a tripod collar made for another lens that fits this? (by all accounts, the Laowa collar is terrible)
Asked by: David
The tripod collar for a Canon 70-200 f4L will fit. B&H sells the one made by Vello. At an auction site, I bought a metal one with an Arca Swiss base that fit this lens and my Canon 200 f2.8L. Do not buy composite ones as they flex a little.

Oops, I meant trouble attaching the lens hood, not cap. Anyone have the same trouble?
Asked by: David
Sorry to hear about your troubles with the lens hood! I'd recommend reach out to us on our new video live-chat feature and maybe we can walk you through it, or at the very least visually inspect it in order to make sure it is not defective. :)

Does anyone have trouble getting the lens cap to attach properly? I can't get it to properly attach either way...
Asked by: David
The Venus Optics Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO Lens comes with a center-pinch 67mm lens cap. To connect the lens cap, you should first pinch the center-pinch tabs on the front of the lens cap, then ensure the lens cap is properly seated on the front of your lens, then release the tabs of the lens cap. You may then lightly grasp the edge of the lens cap and give a slight wiggle to see if it is properly seated and clipped into the filter threads on the front of the lens.

Unfortunately no exif data on my D7500. I believe you can create a custom lens profile for the lens on a D850 though
