Looks like the eBay listing now says "this listing has ended." Makes me think somebody goofed.

Not before it sold 250 copies. Maybe it was one of those eBay sponsored deals.

That is one lucky fall I would say. You should thank her for that ;)

Glad the lens itself is OK.

Yea it definitely could've been worse. Well now I know that the knob isn't made of metal like the other parts.

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!!
