    Quick Release Plate for Telephoto Lenses (3") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acratech 3 Quick Release Plate for Telephoto Lenses I am a longtime user of Acratech equipment and this plate reminds me how great their products are. I shoot sports with this plate, balancing a heavy 70-200 f2.8 Nikkor lens on a D750 or D800 on a monopod. At the sideline of, for example, a football game, you are constantly moving to keep up with the action on the field or to get out of the way of a running back coming at you being pursued by the defense. I rely on the plate to keep my equipment safe and be able to move quickly and easily. Tough, strong, secure, it handles the stress I put on the lens. The only complaint, and it's minor, is that it is a little difficult to put on to the lens collar. You need to sit down and carefully set it over the holes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Exactly what I wanted to fit on the bottom of my telephoto lens holder bracket, so I can attach it to the ball head of my tripod. The screw supplied with the plate does not stay in the plate mount on its own, but since I intend to keep this plate attached to my lens holder bracket, this is not a big deal (it would be if this was a camera plate mount, which you are far more likely to take on and off quite often).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works great - I would buy this product again. Great product. I use this plate on my Canon 70-200 L with the optional foot. I place the plate on the lens foot backwards - the plate extends longer towards the mount than the front lens. This permits me to adjust the camera / lens position on the tripod for better balance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Nikon 701-200 2.8 I find it the right size for a Nikon 70-200 2.8. I like how it uses double mounting screws to keep it from twisting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made but... This is a decent quick release plate, but I do wish is sat a little tighter on my Sirui ball head on the tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tripod mount Worked well for my Canon 28-300 lens and an Arca-Swiss mount. Solid. Much better than the Manfrotto mount.
