Price-wise buy – YN Ring Style Tripod Mount for Canon Reviews

posted by Biite on 03/13/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The pro's are obvious:
- It looks like a Canon tripod mount
- It fits perfectly around my 70-200
- It is very lightweight, which is very nice with an overfilled camera bag :)
- There's some sort of felt on the inside so that the ring does not scratch the lens
Cons:
- It is not exactly color matching with the Canon lens
- The felt seems to leave some blue residu on my lens.
- Had to wiggle the screw a little bit to get it to enter its hole
- I would like to see the felt be a bit 'thicker'. It's almost as thick as the aluminium around it, so if you tighten your ring to much you will scratch your lens.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you've got the money, buy the Canon. If you don't buy this one !!!
