Quote from: Mike D. B. on November 04, 2016, 07:47:54 amThat's why I absolutely require a tripod collar on as many lenses as possible. And that's the reason I never bought the Zeiss 100/2 macro (no collar!).

But with modern Image Stabilization and Sensor Gain Circuitry giving absurd ISO levels why bother?Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

Quote from: stever on November 03, 2016, 10:46:13 pmsuggestion - remove 2 or 3 bottom sections from the little Sirui. the bottom 2 are too flexible to support much of anything. i suggest this because i don't think there is a 2 section lightweight carbon fiber equivalent. This may be an irreversible modification unless you can find rubber tips that are the right size for the remaining bottom section.
