My tale on it for what it's worth is . Yes the genuine ring is to expensive but seeing you expensive rig hit the concrete could result in a much larger bill.
Great advice!!! I've had one "knock-off" tripod ring mount, and it didn't break or malfunction technically. It didn't fit nearly as well as the Canon version, and I used it once tor change from landscape to portrait orientation, and within about 3 mm of turning I felt a very uncomfortable grind, and within a minute the lens was out of the ring and the ring was in the trash. I figured the $12.95 that I'd spent on it was "stupid-tax" !!! Canon also 100% backs up their parts in the event of a malfunction/failure. Does "Goober's Garage and Diner Tripod Ring Mount's Discount Drive-In" ?
Remember, it's not ALL about the money spent. I don't want to spend all my money either, but sometimes shortcuts up front, equal bigger cost in the long run.
