You're looking for the Canon Tripod Mount Ring B(w).  Since the lenses that fits (70-200mm 2.8L / 2.8L IS / 2.8L IS II, 100-400mm, and IIRC 28-300mm) all come with one, they aren't sold separately by retailers. Your best bet is probably to call Canon service/parts, or post a WTB on fredmiranda.com.

Expect to pay a grip also.  The collar for the 70-200 f4 is $120!

Dont forget about the ebay option... You dont have to get a cheap knock off, see if they have the OEM goods... That's where i got my collar for my 70-200... Dont think i spent more than $30
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I can get you one, they have to be ordered directly from a Canon parts supplier. In Canada it's Global electronics. It's not a retail part.

I just bought 2 of them and they were $160 each.

Let me know, or call Canon in your country to get the part supplier.

In Canada the part is: YG9-0263-120

Do not buy the ebay ones, they have no metal insert in the screw hole.
