        Comments about Wimberley P30 Quick Release Plate:

        Recently I bought a Tamron 150-600mm. It is a large lens, and heavy. I needed a good solid plate to mount it in my ball head and gimbal adapter.
        This plate from Wimberley was the right size, and had a very appealing price. It fits perfectly, the lens is steady, and allows me to balance it in the gimbal very well. Great plate!

          I bought this clamp to use with my 500mm f4 Nikon lens.
          It was very easy to install, and there is enough room for adjustment so that the lens is perfectly balanced on the Wimberly tripod head.
          It is solidly built and easy to use.

                      The Wimberly plate is mounted on our Nikon 70-200 lens. This plate is one step larger than listed in the recommended chart but it came with the extra screw required for the lens.The P30 plate fite the lens perfectly and works flawlessly with our Wimberly GH-200 gimball head. All of our cameras and lenses will use Wimberly hardware form now on.

                                I bought this plate to attach a newly aquired nikon 500mm lens to my tripod. It was easy to attach and included all of the hardware needed. It only took about 1 minute to accomplish the attachment - it even came with the allen wrench to tighten the mounting screws. The plate is very well made with a professional finish on it. If ever I need another plate, I will buy it again.

                                  A must have to attach my 70-200mm f/2.8 to the Wimberley tripod head. It's easy to attach and slides in "silky-smooth". The plate tightens into place perfectly and does not budge.

                                    Use it with my 300 mm lens. been using it since i bought it.Paired with a c12 clamp from Wimberley.
                                    and a manfrotto 680b Monopod. it give me stability and helps when used for a very long time.

                                          It is required to mount your 300 2.8 on any arca swiss style clamp as the original tripod collar cannot me removed, you need to fit this on the feet

                                            It is a well made lens plate. It comes with all the screws you need, including the safety stops which are a nice feature. If weight of the equipment and space in the lens case are a concern and you want to shave off every gram you can, then you may also consider a replacement lens foot instead of a lens plate.

                                              I ordered this with my Wimberley 11 head to fit my canon ef300 f2.8 lens. it's a must if you are attaching a big lens to this or similar head. I recommend using the two small screws to avoid the lens sliding out when aiming up or down while loosening the clamp.
