Tripod Mount Ring A-2 for 70-200mm f/4L is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A-2 Ring has some issues I bought this mount to go with my Canon 70-200 f4L IS lens, which was advertised to go with the lens body. Upon receipt, tried to mount it on the lens, and the mount ring would not close and lock securely. My initial thought was to return it to B&H and exchange for another. Examining the mount, there are 2 adhesive backed felt strips on the interior of the mount. Removing both of the strips caused the lens to lock, but allowed it to rotate within the mount. Installing only one strip solved the problem, and the lens was secured in the mount. This should be brought to the attention of Canon, and replacement felt strips should be available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the Dr. ordered.... I bought this after mounting my 5D2 on a to take some night shots from the top of a parking garage at night. The lens is a little front heavy in this configuration to start with and with a little breeze blowing, it was just enough to cause some unwanted blur on quite a few time exposures. I immediately ordered this tripod ring and it's solid as a rock... It's easy on and off and really puts everything in balance... I wish the design of the ring on my new f/2.8 70-200L IS II USM was as well designed you could remove it from the lens without having to take the lens off the camera body... Oh well - the lens is so good we can live with a minor inconvenience...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Balance I bought this to better balance my lens/camera on a tripod/monopod when using the longer end of the focal length. Mounting the camera on the tripod, there was noticable vibration for a second or two from touching the lens/camera but the tripod ring fixed that problem resulting in sharper photos. Better balance + less shake = sharper photos. I would also like to note that the tripod I use is very robust and virtually shake-free. I have to agree with the crowd that Canon priced this a little high or should have included it with the lens, but overall I am happier with the results I'm getting out of the lens now. The mounting ring is well made and fits the lens perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality mount means piece of mind. Tightens smoothly without stripping. The pin lock-up is solid, and the inside is lined with a velvet-textured surface.If you are going to spend the extra money on a better quality lens, then also spend the few extra dollars on the better quality tripod mount ring. Remember, the mount is the ONLY thing preventing your lens from falling to the concrete. Don't take a chance on the screw stripping or the pin failing. Consider the extra money and better quality as insurance for your lens and camera. If you don't yet have the extra money, just be patient and save a little longer. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Investment, But Worth It I bought this tripod ring to use with my Canon 70-200mm f/4L-series lens. Though the lens is much lighter than its f/2.8L-series cousin, it's still too heavy to use the camera mount for the tripod. I especially like the convenience of being able to switch from horiztonal to vertical shots without moving the tripod head -- I just loosen the tripod ring and rotate the camera. The ring is solidly built -- a bit pricey, but I'd rather spend a little more for quality gear than risk having a tripod ring break. I think it'll be worth it in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the gear balance on the tripod Without the Canon Tripod Mount my 70-200 f4L IS with a 1.4 extender was uncomfortably front heavy on the Rebel SXi. The ballhead sagged with all of the front weight and needed lifting by hand. When loosening friction on the ballhead the combination would drop forward if not careful. Now with the Mount, the whole rig is balanced like a ballerina on one toe. Adjustments are easily made with little effort. I am pleased with the solid construction and enjoying the extra dividend of easily rotating the camera when setting up shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful but expensive The tripod ring makes a big difference in minimizing vibration - especially when using the Canon 1.4x teleconverter. Having the lens and converter hanging off the body, and the body being the only support for the setup, I found it easy to get some vibration when zoomed all the way out - especially with some wind. With the tripod ring, this is significantly reduced and my keeper rate has risen. On a monopod, the ring helps even more. It is well enough constructed that I have no qualms carrying my monopod or tripod over my shoulder with camera and lens attached. I love the f4 IS 70-200 lens, and the ring makes it even better. With the 1.4x converter, I would say the ring is almost a necessity to wring the most out of the lens. If only it was more reasonably priced - it is well made and sturdy, but it doesn't look like it should cost this much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must if you use a monopod with the f/4 The only downside to the 70-200 f/4L was the lack of a tripod ring. That kept the cost down. When you have the money and you use a monopod / tripod, buy this mount! Panning shots turn out great, puts less strain on ballheads, and you can twist the camera smoothly along it's axis. Very smooth adjustments on the drag setting. Anything from total free spin to complete lockdown. Only downer was the lack of instructions. It simply snaps around (you have to un snap it first), same for removal. Other than that, nothing major to complain about.
