Product Highlights
  • For Nikon 400mm f/2.8 AF-S (I & II) & 600mm AF-S II & VR Lenses

The Kirk LP-46 Lens Plate is designed to take the place of the original tripod collar foot of a Nikon 400mm f/2.8 AF-S (I and II) & 600mm AF-S II and VR lenses, and to convert the collar to make it directly compatible with Arca-type quick release clamps, without the need for additional quick release plates. The foot is 1.875" shorter then the original Nikon foot, which helps to lower its center of gravity. Critical mass is also reduced, but the original Nikon design is still maintained, which allows it to still be used as a carrying handle.

Each adapter comes complete with all the necessary hardware and tools to make the conversion.

Durable
Machined from 6061T6 aluminum, and anodized to an unscratchable black satin finish.
Double-Dovetail Cross-Section
Double-dovetail design allows attachment of additional accessories to the upper or lower surface of the plate.
Weight 3.7 oz (105mm)

              Comments about Kirk LP-46 Replacement Arca-Type Quick Release Lens Plate/Foot:

              This foot completely solved my BIG problem - which was caused by the ridiculously high foot that is supplied by Nikon with their 400mm f/2.8 lens. I truly cannot think of ANY justification for the Nikon foot. It's totally impractical - and I know I'm not the only owner who has expressed these sentiments.

              I bought the replacement foot to allow me to use the above lens with a CB gimbal (B&H # CUCBGB) as the original foot prevented me achieving a balance with the gimbal. Believe me, top-heaviness is NOT what you want with a gimbal! Frankly, I believe my comments will hold true for this lens with ANY gimbal.

              I wholeheartedly recommend replacing Nikon's standard foot with the Kirk LP-46. Not only does this foot eliminate top-heaviness, it provides a far more comfortable and sturdy hand hold for the lens when it is dismounted from a gimbal. As an added bonus, the lens (with foot attached) fits in a far smaller case than is needed if the Nikon foot is left in place.
