I'm using the Leica STA-1 collar, originally made for the 100 APO.  One of
the inner ribs of the collar interferes with the 80-200's red bump so to
make the two fit together either pop the red bump off or (what I did) trim
the rib on the inner side of the collar to clear the red bump.  I have
heard that the Canon tripod collar for the 70-200 f/4 will also fit:
