Kirk NC- P80 overview

  • 1Description

The Kirk NC- P80 Lens Collar is a replacement lens collar specifically designed for the Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF lens (Nikon #1985, push-pull version only). It is designed to provide maximum lens support.

Precisely machined from lightweight 6061T6 aluminum, the base is made to fit any Acra Swiss-type quick release clamp. In addition, instead of only one point of support, the NC80-200 provides an additional point of support for the lens at the other end of its plate.

Due to the design of this lens, the collar can not rotate. For vertical shooting, please make sure to use a ballhead that allows for 90° positioning.

Note: Only compatible with 80-200mm version #1985 (push-pull version)

    Kirk NC- P80 reviews

    NC- P80 Lens Collar for Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful work of industrial art ! The Not what I expected review by Ross, dated 3/5/2013, is totally accurate, IF AND ONLY IF, you have the early non-D version of the Nikon 80-200 f2.8 lens. However, if you have the later D version push-pull (aka one-touch) then this beautiful work of industrial art is definitely for you. It is well designed and manufactured, and fits the D version like a glove. I bought the lens to use on my Nikon D5200 (using manual focus) but my first test with the lens left me uncomfortable with that much weight hanging on the tripod-mounted camera. This Kirk mount totally solved that problem by taking the stress off of the camera mount. Using the rear of the three tripod mounting holes balances the lens & my camera with its battery grip almost perfectly. A real joy to use, and I definitely recommend it if you have the D version of the Nikon one-touch 80-200 f2.8 lens. But definitely don't buy it if you have the earlier non-D version of the lens. A worthwhile investment if you aren't wanting to incur the cost of buying one of the Nikon 2-ring versions of the 80-200 f2.8

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kirk 80-200 2.8D lens collar I will be using this on my B1 ball head for various duties. The quality of construction is very good and it fits the lens well. I wish it had a way of retaining the lens in the support closest to the camera so it could be tilted the opposite direction to the right or left, but there really isn't any room on the lens for a retainer so I will be content with what it does. It is still a major improvement over any other device I have seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best solution for the heavy lenses Easy to use.Solid construction.I have given lots of bad advise on how to solve the vertical problem with my heavy lens. Some suggested L bracket some thought I should replace my ball head, and NONE of them worked except this one.And thanks to people at Kirk who advised me about this item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Profile, Simple Solution Simple solution for the push-pull 80-200 2.8 AF-D. Mine holds the lens tight and secure. Considering the size and weight of this lens, I feel the NC-P80 is low profile in comparison. Just get one and be done with it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected. It doesn't lock on the lens and there are no instructions as to how to use it. As best I can determine it may cradle the lens and take the weight off the camera, but it is rather amateurish and I don't recommend it. I wouldn't recommend putting it on the tripod without keeping your neck strap firmly around your neck. I can see the whole camera falling to the ground. The price is way too high for what you get. Color me disappointed.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cradle not Collar This is suitable only for the old version of the push-pull lens. IT IS NOT A LENS COLLAR. IT IS A LENS CRADLE!. The lens sits loosely inside of it and the camera/lens combination slides forward as you point in a downward direction (such as on a bridge and you are shooting objects below). I stabilize the lens by applying I/4 inch weather stripping around the inside of the circular portion of the cradle, then tighten the screw to grip the lens snuggly. This work around has been effective for me. Unfortunately this is the only device available that will hold this lens/camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality equipment Well built and solid, this collar mounts easily and quickly. The multiple mounting points provide solid footing for what is a 3 pound lens plus camera body. My only complaint is that there is no grippy sruface inside the collar, so the lens can turn in the collar when handled. But overall. a fine piece of very useful equipment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Necessary Evil Seems to be the only option available. A bit pricey for essentially just a tripod mount. It is solid and works well, although I see myself losing the Allen wrench for the main attachment screw. Also worried I may strip the threads because this seems like a single point of failure. Had to have it this lens is a BEAST!
