      Comments about Kirk SGH-1 Super Grip Handle, with Arca-Type Quick Release Mount:

      Yes, as others already mentioned, this is an must have for this fantastic, but at the same time very heavy and bulky lens. This handle is very solid, big enough for users with solid hands. Also a good protection for your mind and wallet.

        Comments about Kirk SGH-1 Super Grip Handle, with Arca-Type Quick Release Mount:

        I own the Nikon 200mm f2 VR lens which is one of the most fantastic lenses around. However I found it hard to handle. It is quite heavy and difficult or uncomfortable to cradle in my left hand while shooting. The Kirk handle solves this problem. I also can carry my camera+lens using this grip. Anything having an Arca type plate can be carried or supported with this grip. I really like it.

          Comments about Kirk SGH-1 Super Grip Handle, with Arca-Type Quick Release Mount:

          The perfect solution to carrying medium telephotos around when not taking a tripod or monopod. Rugged, secure and comfortable this makes those realtively heavy mid size (and occaionally the super) telephotos very manageable.

          I now have 2 of these and regulsrly carry both a 200 F2.0L and the 400 DO IS.

          I have even carried an 800 F5.6L on one of these - heavy yes but it worked well and got me to places and shots I would never have got with a tripod

          I use this hanble to carry my Sigma 120-300 f2.8 lens and camera body.. This lens/handle combination is not only easy to carry , but looks great as well. and it is easily removed for transport and mounting on a tripod...

              Use this on a Nikon 200 F2.0 and love it.
              Weighs almost nothing, and does the job it should do. Highly recommended.

                  Comments about Kirk SGH-1 Super Grip Handle, with Arca-Type Quick Release Mount:

                  I use this with a 5d II with a kirk L-Bracket. Using the grip allows me to hold the camera with both hands in a rock steady position. The grip attaches just like my tripod head with a quick turn of the screw. The grip is solid and I have no reservations carying the camera and lens combo just by the handle. Gives my shooting hand a break. Can also be used as a mini rest to shoot from.

                      Makes heavy telephotos like the 70-200 lens or relative others a breeze to carry around, provided you remove the unnecessary neckstrap from the camera body.
