Is there a 3rd party alternative tripod collar for this lens yet? The cheapest I can find the TS-111 socket is £130, which seems ridiculous for what is essentially a ring of metal.


I bought and today received tripod mount for Sigma AF 150-500. This collar is 1mm wider then the widest point (and that doesn't count rubber ring) on Sigma 100-400.

To mount this collar I removed rubber ring but then collar is much bigger. So I moved it little bit further and now sits in between "collar place" and focus ring. Actually back of collar doesn't allow you to move it further then what you can see on photo.

This is place where collar sits.

It's very sturdy and there is no movement what so ever. To switch to portrait mode was easy, just loosen screw and rotate camera-lens and tighten the screw.
