    just got a canon 500mm lens and wanted to get the right gear to use it - wimberley 2 head. Put it all together and with just one set screw this P10 plate didn't seem strong enough for the lens. ... I need a P-50. I have that one on order now. Will use the P-10 with a smaller lens, so it won't be wasted. wish I had done a little more research before my order.

    As it is mandatory for the Wimberley Tripod head I purchased would have been best if it came with the head

          There isn't much to say about this product. It's beautifully made, sturdy and does its job very well. Certainly worth the price.

              Very easy to slide on and off once it's mounted to the lens. It also has a flange that keeps it from rotating like other QR plates do under heavy use. I really appreciate that!

                    I used this with my 600mm lens It works exactly like it is suppose to. It is secure and holds the lens perfectly. the only issue I have is I have to tip it slightly to get it to slide onto the tripod. the screws seem to stick out just a bit.

                        I use Wimberley clamps almost exclusively now. There are no advantages I have seen for the more expensive lens specific plates from others. Each plate fits a wide range of lenses, even many that are not on Wimberley's list. As always fit and finish are perfect.

                              The Wimberly P-10 is a precisely machined lens plate with a black anodized finish. Attached to my 300mm f/4, it locks solidly onto my A-S compatible ball head with no movement or vibration. Using the optional set screws makes it easy to decide how to mount the combination on a ball head: by sliding it on from the front or rear, or dropping it into the clamp. Great product-highly recommended.

                                Comments about Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate:

                                The Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate is a must-have for long lenses (such as the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8) when using a tripod or monopod. I have Wimberely Quick Release Plates mounted on all of my long lenses. They allow me to mount and dismount the camera/lens combination quickly on my tripod and monopod. Of course, you must have a Wimberley clamp or head mounted on your tripod or monopod. The build quality of the plate is excellent and the safety stops are a great idea!

                                Does what it's intended to do. You've invested $2k or more in your lens...its a no-brainer to invest [$] in a secure footing for your rig atop your tripod setup. I'd say this is just as important as getting a protective filter. Get one at the same time as your next lens. The manufacturer's website has all the correct sizing & application info you'll need.

                                  No complaints: its size is well-suited for my 150 mm Sigma lens and it's clamped securely by my Kirk ballhead clamp. I've found it's not safe to assume all brands advertised as "Arca Swiss" type will necessarily have the correct dimensions needed for secure clamping; however this Wimberley plate is nicely made and is an excellent fit for the Kirk clamp.

                                    I use this plate for my Sigma 120-300 F2.8 OS lens on a Acratech GV2 ball head. The long and short of it is that it fits perfectly and works great.

                                      I needed a couple of quick release plates and had used Wimberley in the past. Good construction, albeit a bit pricey. Gets the job done though.

                                        I bought this lens plate for a Canon 70-200 f2.8, it works great, just as it should. I will say that the back of the plate has to be mounted very close to the camera to put it on the proper balance point, but it does fit. Solid build like all other wimberley products I've used.
