It looks like it's just the plastic knob broken off the screw, can you still grip it and tighten the knob ok? If you've ordered the el-cheapo from ebay, maybe you can get the screw out of that one and fit it into your canon-ring? (yep, that sounds dirty too). The cheapo tripod ring i've got from ebay is plastic, but at least the screw is metal...

Yup I can still tighten by turning the metal part. But the knob that was attached was designed such a way that even unscrewing it completely (loosening the grip), it still wouldn't come off like that because the knob was permanently attached to the metal bit. So I think I have to have canon repair it.

Thanks Doug. I actually ordered one just like that from eBay as a temporary fix until I either get this repaired or get a new OEM one. It'll just bug me till I get my lens back to its original form.

Thanks for your input. I will probably try the second option since I can't find the other smaller piece of that knob and it would just look weird without it.

Hi all...

So my wife accidentally dropped my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens (in its case) and broke the knob off of the tripod collar. Is there any way to get this fixed besides getting a new one? I can't seem to find the original anywhere. Although there is one seller on ebay who just posted it but the item has heavy signs of usage which I don't like. My lens feels naked without it and I would hate to put in a non-canon ring on this beautiful lens. Please help!!
