I have this lens without the tripod foot. I will not reveal how much I paid for it about 5 years ago. It will make you sick and me happy! Anyway, does anyone know how I can find just the tripod foot? I've already asked Pentax- no parts. I've tried a Canon foot, to no avail. Any suggestions?

Someone said that you can use the tripod ring of the 200mm f/2.8. Apparently someone in Pentax Arizona has them. Google it.

I got my foot from Pentax parts a couple of years ago or so. They definitely don't have all F*300 parts, but they had some. It may have been from AZ - I can't remember for sure, but I think I called CO and they gave me a new number to call.

My Pentax rep gave me a number and I actually called the parts lady in Colorado. No tripod ring and will not be one! However I did not ask her about the Pentax 200 2.8. Maybe I should try her again.

Check that the 200/2.8 fits the F*, or could be the FA. In any case, I most of the time use it without the tripod collar. Only when I have to do long walks I use the tripod collar to grab it from.

IIRC, Neither the A* nor the FA* 200/2.8 had tripod rings. My understanding was that the FA* 200 f4 Macro foot and the F* 300 f4.5 were similar, but not exactly the same. One would work on the other, but not the other way around -- my recollection is that the foot from the 200 would work with the 300, but there was something that prevented the opposite, but I definitely could be wrong.

Regardless, congrats to both the buyer and seller!
