    Kirk NC-300PF reviews

    Lens Collar for AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trouble with Locking Screw I have a number of Kirk products; lens collars, lens plates, and other. All top quality, 5-star stuff. Quality machining. But, this collar for my new 300mm f/4 PF VR lens has a problem. When closing and clamping the split collar around the lens, the collar lock screw doesn't line up well with the female tapped hole. I have to play with the screw to get it to thread easily. I'm very worried about stripping the threads.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid quality and smooth lens rotation. As with all Kirk Products I own, this collar has the solid look and feel that I am accustomed to with the Kirk line of products. I purchased this for those times that I do need to mount my 300mm lens to a tripod or monopod, which until now would be seldom as the lens has excellent VR and is easily hand held. A recent surgery has me lifting and hold minimal weight. So now I can recoup while still getting out and taking pictures. Solid product and I would recommend it. The tightening knob seems a bit bulky and overkill for the size and weight of the lens or I would have given it five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good product I primarily want to mention one of the issue mentioned by another review about the weight balance. The issue is the lens being too light. To solve the issue you can put the collar in reverse. Yes, it sounds funny, but it works. That way the QR will come under your camera and it works perfectly fine with smaller bodies. Not sure about professional bodies or normal camera with battery pack. Hopefully useful for some.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you need a collar for the new Nikon 300mm f/4 PF lens Still not sure if one needs a collar for this small and light a lens, but got used to having a collar with the Arca-type plate for my other larger lenses. When I tried my camera (a D7100) with a plate and this lens and the TC-14E on my tripod, under live view there seemed to be a fair amount of movement with the windy conditions I was trying to shoot in (the camera was secured on my Wimberly via a lens plate attached to the camera). It is possible that the VR would take care of the movements but wondered if it would be worth buying a collar so that the lens would be attached to the tripod, a more central location. This would also allow me to turn the camera to get a vertical shot. Since a RRS collar and foot would cost $ and the Nikon RT-1 wouldn't have the arca quick-release plate, decided to buy the Kirk collar. So far it seems very solid on the tripod and allows me to readily rotate my camera. Not sure it is worth getting a collar for this lens, but if you decide to do it, the Kirk collar seems to be the best choice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Kirk fan..., but not so much on this item. This is my second Kirk lens collar (two different lenses), and in both the materials and workmanship is straight-up 5 stars. My other collar (on an 80-400 Nikon zoom) is such a perfect match for the lens that I can't now imagine using the lens with out it. I consider myself a satisfied Kirk customer.That said, I'm not so much a fan of the design of the collar for the 300mm f/4 PF lens. Once the lens is attached to a camera (esp. on the larger and heavier cameras), the lens's lightness makes the center of gravity *behind* the collar (towards the camera body), yet the tripod foot is set in *front* of the collar. This makes it impossible to balance on my Wimberly gimbal head (which I use for wildlife photography). And even on a ballhead or other mount the camera-lens combo has better balance by mounting the tripod/monopod to the camera itself instead of to the collar.I have discussed this at some length with Kirk, suggesting they consider offering an alternate foot that would extend behind the collar. The contact person there was very friendly and helpful, but short of adding another $ for a replacement platform on the gimbal, there currently is no solution. So, there is a good chance that I will be returning this collar and go with a cheaper standard collar and add an Arca-Swiss plate that will extend more to the rear.I give this 5 stars on quality of material and workmanship; but if balance is important (as it is with me), you might want to re-think choosing this collar. (And if balance isn't important, well, why buy a lens collar at all?) So, for its impracticality of use, I only give this one two stars. (If there was a rear-extending alternative foot option, my rating would be 5 stars all the way.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would but this agin instead of the Nikon model This device allows me to spin the camera to vertical when mounted on my monopod in or outside of safari vehicles in Africa. Nikon Australia had no stock of the original Nikon model so thank you B& H for your great range of photography equipment. This product worked perfectly and is one of the few non Nikon products I would use with my Nikon range.
    Date published: 2017-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective means of reducing the lever effect Using the 300mm PF lens on a tripod, the lever effect amplifies vibrations because the tripod plate is under the body. In guesstimating, the Kirk lens collar removes at least 80% of these vibrations. It is mounted in front of the point of equilibrium, but it would not be feasible to move it backward because of the front parts of the body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Well made and perfectly fitting when lightly tightened to the lens.
