Which Canon lenses use a B size tripod mount?

Anyone who downvoted this question, (-1 reps as of now), do you care to explain why? user3709, welcome to the community. Personally, I don't understand what's so wrong with this question. The fact that there are 2 good answers means that the question is valid. –  ysap Feb 5 '11 at 6:55
I wasn't the one who downvoted it, but if I had to take a guess, I'd say that the answer 'why' is probably contained in @Stan's answer... It took him longer to type the answer than it would have taken the OP to simply Google the information... –  Jay Lance Photography Feb 7 '11 at 1:01

I'm aware of these three:

  • EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
  • EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
  • MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro

...but that's today, and the answer could have been Googled faster than I can type it.

well just to start: Canon EF 180mm f3.5L Macro USM, Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5L Macro USM, MP-E 65mm f2.8 1-5x Macro Photo and at least half a dozen others

go to this site and look around for yourself
