The Really Right Stuff Collar Foot Package for Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens replaces the original manufacturer's collar and foot. This replacement lowers the height of the lens and gives more support and stability when rotating the lens within the collar. This accessory also adds a double dovetail design to the foot, which is compatible with most Arca-type clamps. With a double dovetail, other Arca-type accessories can also clamp on top of the tripod foot.

The Collar Foot Package is CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, and has been Type II black anodized, which makes it resistant to abrasions and corrosion. If an Arca-type clamp is not present, a 1/4"-20 threaded female socket is located on the bottom of the foot, so the lens can screw onto a tripod head.

    Collar Foot Package for Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wouldn't buy again. I agree with the other negative reviews on this collar. The design of this product does not seem thought out and for the price I would say go the Kirk route. Like another reviewer, had I more time I would have sent mine back for the price but my factory collar wouldn't tighten enough and I was on my way out of town. I run a L-bracket on the d500 and still feel the foot should be longer. The screws are not smooth and can stick a bit. The only positive I can think of is the quick release foot for handholding. I can't recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Right Stuff collar for Nikon200-500mm f/5.6 The now RRS Nikon 200-500mm lens collar is very well designed, rotates smoothly and with fine craftsmanship - solid. The original Nikon and other lens collars have a fixed tripod foot. The detachable foot on the RRS's collar is extremely handy and when detached reduces the collars foot bulky protrusion, when needed. In my case, when using the Think Tank Holster 30, a camera with the above lens attached and collar that has a fixed foot will not go into the bag without removing the collar first, and there's no pockets on the Holster large enough to accommodate the removed lens collar. With the RRS collar, detaching the foot will now allow camera with lens and collar affixed to fit in the bag, a bit tight, but it fits...... and there's even place to store the removed foot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed The collar foot is a very sturdy and safe construct but unlike the stock Nikon collar that comes with the 200 - 500mm it s not angled . Therefore the camera sits forward considerably and the lens when extended is out of balance and droops down . To achieve balance with the RRS . you have to slide the collar foot half way back on the Gimbal Head - this is not safe !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Product from the Really Right Stuff This is another excellent product from the San Luis Obispo, CA based company, the Really Right Stuff (RRS). I believe that all of the RRS products are manufactured in the United States to exacting standards. After hours of use, I can report that this Collar Foot Package made by the RRS for the Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens is on-target. I would purchase it again and I do recommend this product to anyone considering replacing the original Nikon lens collar. Over time I have purchased several of the RRS products and have never been disappointed - this lens collar package does not disappoint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement collar I wanted the arca-swiss type quick release plate for my Nikon 200-500mm lens. I tried an add on to the existing foot which was a good quality item but due to the poor design of the Nikon provided collar/foot (only 1 screw hole on the foot to hold a very heavy lens) it kept coming loose. I like this lens too much just to let it fall to the ground so I bought this new RRS collar/foot. Great quality and works just as well if not better than the original plus it has arca-swiss type plate built in. It's a bit pricey but my lens is worth it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing The Collar Foot is a very sturdy build , but the design needs to be improved . The foot collar interface is perpendicular , whereas on the Nikon collar it is angled . Therefore on the RRS the camera is closer to the base on a Gimbal head and the balance is much different . In order to achieve balance when the lens is at maximum zoom , you have to slide the RRS foot half way back on the Gimbal head base - only half of the RRS foot is actually clamped ( much less security ! ) .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it A great improvement over the stock collar. EZ to put on or remove. Beefy but added weight is minimal. Initially I went to the RRS website to buy it but they were out of stock. I didn't know that there were third party vendors for their products until I seen it on B and H. BTW the price was the same as the RRS price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from TWO versions ... LC-A14 + LCF-11 and LC-A14 + LCF-12 I was an early purchaser of the LC-A14 Package, consisting of the collar and the LCF-11 foot -- the same foot used for the new 70-200 f/2.8E Nikkor zoom. It works. The collar is excellent, worthy of 4-1/2 stars (I'd give it 5 stars if it offered a secondary support point). However, the LCF-11 foot is not properly designed for the 200-500 f/5.6E (works perfectly on the shorter 70-200 lens). Balance is off with DX bodies when the lens is NOT extended unless they have the optional battery grip and it's off with any body when the lens is fully extended. The new version of the LC-A14 Package includes the new LCF-12 foot which was designed especially to remedy these problems. It's dovetail is longer, allowing for greater balance adjustments. With the OLD LC-A14 + LCF-11 combination, 3 stars, maximum. With the NEW LC-A14 + LCF-12 combination, 4-1/2 stars, solid. Make sure you get the new version.
