Tripod collar for 55-300 DAL

I was wondering if one was made for this lens, or is it that one is not needed?

I'm new to this forum, and somewhat new to digital photography.

Definitely not necessary, it is quite a light lens - and no, none is made specifically for it!

The lens is significantly lighter than any Pentax DSLR body. Not only is it not necessary, but mounting by the lens would probably cause more stress on the lens mount than mounting by the body.
