Re: 200mm f.4 AI lens

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. The lens arrived today, actually two weeks before it was supposed to (the reason I even asked and din't just wait). I ordered a collar and I'll adapt it to fit.

Supporting the hood is better than nothing, but less helpful against vibrations. I'll probably attach it under where the hood is (might be possible to remove the hood with that small screw, haven't checked it), or on the near side of the focus ring. The former would probably be a little more rigid, but the latter is easier to adapt and has the bonus of holding the focus ring in place, so no chance of it moving during the stack (the lens stays at the same focus).
