Precisely machined from a solid block of 6061-T6 aluminum, the Really Right Stuff LCF-18 Foot will replace the original foot of a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm or 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens and provides an extremely durable and stable platform for your lens. The foot incorporates an Arca-type compatible design that allows users to enjoy a lower profile and lighter setup.

Further enhancing the design is a push-button QD sling swivel socket, permitting use of a QD strap without any extra equipment. Alongside the QD socket are two 1/4"-20 and two 3/8"-16 accessory threads and the foot comes with two safety-stop screws to prevent the foot from accidentally sliding out of some clamps. Additionally, it is made in the USA.

    LCF-18 Foot for Nikon 500mm & 600mm f/4E FL Lenses is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too short for use with gimbal mount The balance point of the new lens when used with a D850 or D500 or comparable weight camera requires having a long enough foot mount to position the lens far enough back in the mount. The RRS foot with its length of 6.0 inches is too short to accomplish this with either of these cameras. The Wimberley P-50 plate at 6.6 inches in length works much better and the cost is much less than that of the RRS foot that will not work anywhere near as well. If you want a single piece foot for the lens then the Wimberley AP-555 foot which has a total length of 6.7 inches is the best one to get. If the lens had come with the RRS foot I would have had to replace it with the Wimberley foot to have a usable mount for the 600mm f/4 FL lens. The Nikon foot with the Wimberley P-50 plate attached works perfectly and there are no issues with carrying the lens and using the foot as a handle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An improvement on the original Balances perfectly with a D850 and a 500mm 1:4E FL ED, back to the stop on a Nest gimbal.� I do miss the cushioned grip that the Nikon foot has, as I use this lens normally hand held and carry it inverted by the foot. The Nikon foot feels a little more secure in my hand. Other than that, the machining and design appears better than the Nikon foot. A knurled or checkered surface would have done the job as well.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not long enough On the 600mm FL + Nikon lens hood+ Nikon pro body, combo,� the LCF-18 is not long enough to seat fully on the wimberly gimbal clamp. Its about 1 cm short. It will be even shorter when the combination is used with a lighter body. Check http://www.krishphoto.com/equipment/rrs-lcf-18-doesnt-play-well-nikon-600mm-fl.html
