Most bang for the buck! – YN Ring Style Tripod Mount for Canon Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Fits Canon EF 70-200 4L USM very good. * 99% Aluminium (Steel screw) makes it lightweight. * Looks authentic and colour match the lens. * Really cheap compared to OEM. * Soft fabric glued on inside.
Cons:
* A bit poor build quality. The screw has got a lot of friction. * Mine was crooked. It was probably not bent. I think the hole for the hinge pin was a bit of track.
Other:
* I would loved to see some kind of rubber sheet glued on the foot. I think I will modify mine so it won't scratch my tripod.
Bottomline:
Just buy it already. This one is designed for Canon EF 70-200 4L USM and EF 300 4L USM.
