    first one. I just leave it on the collar, but take the collar off when not planning on using a tripod (most of the time)

    the lens itself doesn't have a quick release on the tripod foot?

    I ask because the Nikon 70-200/2.8 has a quick release foot on the tripod collar. So you can just slide it right out:bigthumb:

    The standard lens foot isn't quick release, but you can buy an aftermarket lens foot with the arca swiss style quick release (Kirk, RRS)
