        Comments about Acratech Quick Release Plate for Telephoto Lenses (2.5"):

        Quick release plates are indispensable when you want to switch lenses on the fly. The Acratech plate is easy to attach to the lens (or the camera depending upon the lens you are using). It fits well and is solid.

            I used the plate with my 70 - 200 f2.8 Cannon L series lens on a recent hiking trip. It is a bit pricey for a simple piece of machined steel but it did the job and I felt secure that my lens was not going to come loose.

            Good fit for my Canon 70-200 and 100-400. Holds lenses firmly. Nice low profile. Down side is that this plate cannot be removed quickly by hand. It is attached via allen screw which requires the wrench seen in the photo. I have no need to remove the plate frequently so it's not a problem for me, but others have made note of the potential inconvenience.

                Would be good if it had the option to use the small bolts that keep the plate from sliding off a head.

                Comments about Acratech Quick Release Plate for Telephoto Lenses (2.5"):

                I purchased this along with the cork-base release plate to place on my 400mm 5.6L. I did so to prevent having to remove and attach the plate repeatedly between my camera for wide lenses and my telephoto lens. I like the lip on the end; it prevents twisting while in a portrait composition. That's an issue I had with other plates, the lens would creep on the plate. The reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is for two things. First, the screw is completely loose, it falls right out. The corkscrew base plate has the screw set in the plate permanently, it has an indentation to prevent a fallout and that's a much better design. Doesn't scream quality in that regard. And secondly, the plate requires an allen key to attach and remove. Seems kinda cheap but I knew this going into the purchase. I wont be removing this product from my lens; but I'm still not impressed. I'd rather have a hand turn-able screw that folds up inside. On the fly and in the field this is a must.

                Like other Acratech products, this QR is very well-built. It's lightweight and hasn't moved while using w/ 5D Mk iii and 70-200mm 2.8L lens. Very happy with this product.

                            I purchased this Acratech plate for using with my Sony 70-200mm f2.8 G and my Really Right Stuff quick release ball-head clamp. Works and fits perfectly. Quality seems very good -- on par with the RRS gear. I'd been using the Manfrotto RC2 clamp and plates which are very good, but not as universal as the Arca-Swiss system of tripod clamps and plates. I've purchased a couple of L brackets from RRS and the clamp to match. So I'm in the process of switching over. RRS doesn't have a 2.5" lens plate, so I was happy to find this one.

                                    Good overall product, just feel as not solid as Markins product I use... But no complains.

                                                I use this quick release plate on my Nikon 70-200 VR lens with and without 1.4 & 2.0 telextenders. It holds securely and steadily without trouble.
