Yes, most tripods have a standard (I think either 1/4" or 3/8") screw. Or do you have a fixed tripod head missing the plate?

comment Can a lightweight telephoto zoom lens fulfill my expectations of excellent image quality?
This is a pretty broad question. What research have you done, and what are your specific needs/uses for this lens? I don't know what you define as lightweight (do you hike or travel with this lens). You can in any case obtain the weight from the specs for each lens, freely available online. Canon makes a range of lenses, and someone buys the entire range or they wouldn't make them, so are you the sort that might only buy the top of the line, or settle for something mid-range? I have no idea. You can get plenty of subjective suggestions, but no real answer I'm afraid.
