    The 100/2.8USM (one in this pic) allows a tripod collar to be attached. You have to purchase it separately, and the collar is hard to get in Singapore. The old 100/2.8 non-USM did NOT have a tripod collar. Still, I haven't purchased a collar for my 100/2.8 because it cannot be used with a battery pack / booster- the collar is so close to the lens mount that it hits the battery pack. The lens itself weighs only 5xx grams, Coupled to something like an EOS-3 and booster (12xx-13xx grams) it makes more sense to support the camera.

    Even in this picture, it makes more sense to support the camera. The D30 and two extension tubes would weight a lot more than the lens alone. Ideally, this guy should support both the camera and the lens since he's using so many tubes.

    Depends on company and model. Some cheap Kenko ones I saw selling for between 40-60 bucks. These @&#$ charge exorbitant $$ for a hollow tube. Canon tubes are few hundred $.

    It is available here, but not easily. When I bought my 100/2.8 USM, Cathay said they'd have to special order the collar, and it would take 3-4 weeks. I had to wait for the lens hood for 3 weeks. Try your luck - they might have some in stock. Give them a call. If they can't get it, Don (Camera workshop) can order some from HK.

    Anyway, it is a stupid design. I can't use the collar with my battery pack or booster... So I didn't buy it.
