Yes I know that the tripod connection shouldn't dictate lens selection, but will carry lots of weight if it's close!

Let me clarify the last comment: All other things being equal, the existence, not necessarily inclusion of, a quality collar (e.g. Kirk, RRS), is a major plus for a given lens.

Think it was Kuppenbender in the Accessories forum, told me supporting the weight of the lens is not enough.  A collar that locks the lens down, will decrease the vibrations, resulting is fewer fuzzy pictures.  (He didn't use those exact words, but that's the gist of it.)
