this was my first purchase on e-bay. the lesson learned is to do your homework. stupid, stupid me.i was unaware that 2 versions (non-afs) existed & the seller, if i remember correctly, didn't differentiate. so, i ended up paying almost as much for this lens as for current one with 2 rings & tripod collar. water under the bridge, pre-awareness of nikonians site. my question is, after only finding 1 reference to tripod collars on this site's search, where can i find a tripod collar? or, should i just bite the proverbial bullet with these choices: sell to a reseller or use as is? i did get a good deal on a bogen 3036, sans head, through e-bay. this tripod should be sturdy enough with the right head (still researching panhead vs ballhead) to support this lens & f2 or f100 (if i ever get it - making uninformed choices is $$$ & i won't get fooled again, thanks to all the generous help on this site). what should i do?
