    I won this adapter for 20 quid from ebay. It didn't come with the tripod mount part. All works good but I would like the mount for when using my 100mm macro.

    Anyone know where I could get the part like this?

    It's the bit that sits on the bottom of the adapter.

    Perhaps you could ask the seller you bought it from ? They should have them, if not perhaps know someone that might ?

    That was my first port of call. They were only selling that one and said they didn't have that part as it's lost.

    I will :)

    I can use it on a flat surface but I don't trust the weight with the 100mm macro lens on. (Camera and lens on tripod)

    Looked at the instructions you posted above showing the tripod adaptor it has similarities to the tripod mounting on the Canon 100-400mm mkii

    No idea whether that similarity is exact enough but surmise even if it ( the Canon one) can be bought separately either the Canon one or the Kirk replacement foot will be too costly for this application.

    I think any should fit. I've looked through 1,000's of listing on ebay for the foot plate/base/ tripod mount. I still haven't found anything yet.

    This is the Kirk one that I was recalling........if you look at the mounting point it was was the curvature and the two 'lugs' that look similar to the schematic drawing on the instruction for the Viltrox you posted.

    Is a bit pricey though. If I can get the original one with the dimples, great. If I get one with out I think it should still hold with the screw you have to tighten.

    Yes, pricey as I inferred for your reqs

    In a similar vein be careful screwing a standard (universal) product into the adaptor because the length of the screw in the proper item is possibly shorter I.e. by attaching such a non specific item and tightening up you might damage the adaptor because it will "smash" through the construction???

    PS hopefully you will find Viltrox supportive and able to supply the right item at a reasonable price :)

    I don't know why but neither of those pages will load for me. I tried Chrome and IE :thinking:

    If I can't get a mount I'll just use it for table top work. I have a few mini bean bags I made up and can rest the lens on them :)

    Have you tried the lens on the adaptor to see what it's actually like for weight? I used to use a Commlite adaptor on my A6000 which looked exactly the same (except for the glass in the middle) and never used the built in tripod foot as the weight didn't seem to be an issue.

    If they dont come up with the goods im pretty sure i have one at home you can have for nothing. Just PM me if you want it. Iv got a Fotodiax version of the E mount adapter but dont have a Sony camera anymore. Was going to sell it but happy to give you the tripod bit. Ill need to hunt around as the first thing i did when i got it was to take that bit off but i know ive got it somewhere.

    I have and as it's the Canon EF 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM Lens, it feels very heavy leaning forward on my A6000
