For Nikon 500 f/4 AF-S versions I & II, & VR and Nikon 200-400 f/4 AF-S VR
These custom low-profile replacement feet replace the factory foot on the rotation collar of your lens and also serve as the Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate for your lens. No additional quick-release plate is needed. It makes your lens handle better on a conventional tripod head, such as a ball head, and also makes it easier to pack.
Using the Wimberley replacement foot on your large lens decreases the overall height of the lens, lowering the center of gravity so that it achieves proper balance when used on a gimbal head such as the Wimberley Head or the Sidekick. The replacement feet are specifically designed to allow for optimal gimbal head performance and may be required when using specific lenses on the Wimberley Sidekick.
The replacement feet are millled to slide right into an Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp, and also have 1/4" and 3/8" tapped
holes for mounting to non-quick-release tripod heads and monopods. They have the same dual safety stops and flash bracket compatibility as Wimberley's lens plates.
All tools needed to replace your existing lens foot are included.
