As i understand it there were 4 models of this lens. But could they all take tripod mounts. Did they all come with mounts as standard.

I have the Canon FL-F 300mm f/5.6 S.S.C. (the fluorite version) and it has indeed a built-in tripod mount:

This is a astonishingly good lens for its age (it dates from 1969), with sharp rendering, great colors and contrast, as well as (almost) no chromatic aberrations.

Here are a few old pictures taken with this lens on the Olympus E-P1 (sorry if you have already seen them):

Thanks people. The lens will be here today so i might get to remember what i bought! Wanted to pay before they change their mind but couldn't take it with me. Ive a canon mint ae-program to stick it on. I don't think somehow it will turn out to be the flourite version. Ive seen the sc and earlier versions slagged off but we will see.
