    Because it probably only cost them $5 to make it if that much.

    The 70-300L does not come with a tripod ring. Why is that a problem?


    The 70-300 non-L does not have a tripod ring. Why has no one complained?


    The Tamron 70-300, Sigma 70-300, Canon 75-300, etc. do not have tripod rings. Why has no one complained?


    The Canon 200/2.8 II does not come with a tripod ring. Why has no one complained?


    Why the complaints about the 70-300L? Because Canon thoughtfully designed it to be able to use a tripod ring in the rare case that you would want one. It doesn

    I may be misunderstanding- but I think the op's problem is not that the lens does not come with a tripod ring, but rather that the ring costs $250 on amazon.

    I have found that there tripod rings are over priced but there lenses are not that expensive. Yeah ther are cheaper alternitaves but they are either softer or have focus calibration issues. And even when they are a good value your not saving mega bucks either. The Sigma 24-70mm HSM is only a few hundred dollars cheaper than the Canon.

    my phone company overcharge me almost every month. so i have to check the bill and call them every month.


    my cable company added some services without my permission and i had to spend at least 7-8 hours on the phone to cancel and got the money back....... and then they did the same thing again.


    remember how hard it was to cancel your AOL internet service?


    oh, one more thing, remember they "had to" raise the price when Canon has the rebate come out.......


    .............


    yeah, those hoods and tripod rings are expensive but at least they charge what they ask for, Canon doesn't steal your money. compare to those thieves, Canon is still a good man[]
