    Kirk LP-55SG reviews

    LP-55SG Quick Release Lens Plate is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Handle, but hard to balance This replacement foot does provide a good handle to carry the lens. Easy to install. However, it is not long enough to properly balance the lens and my 5DMIII on my Wimberley gimbal when a 1.4x is added. I replaced this foot with the one from RRS, which provides more than enough travel room for the lens, 1.4x, and camera to properly balance on my Wimberley

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent product I use this on a Canon 600mm f/4 USM II lens. It is a lower profile lens foot than the Canon, and, it provides quick release with my Wimberly Gimbal Head II. The rough texture version is a good idea in that it makes holding the lens by the foot a more secure venture. After buying this I found, online, another similar foot/plate, made by 4th Generation Designs. Same price, might be even a better design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Texture and longer foot!! I love this guy - swapped it out on my 500 the day I got the lens and have never looked back. Nice to have it a tad longer than the Canon original for carrying in the field. The grip assures safety when hiking with and more comfortable to carry around. Coincidentally... I had called called B&H, Canon Professional Services and Kirk as well - to find out if this same foot would fit my 300 2.8 IS II as well... nobody seemed to think it would work - as it turns out, the monopod foot that ships with the 500 4.0 is identical to the normal foot on the 300 2.8. Soooo, logic says, this foot will fit identically the same on the 300 (it does, I tried it) which is probably a little longer than needed, but really nice to be able to carry in the field with the longer foot for comfort on the hand! Well worth the investment in my opinion for the grippy texture and the ease of tossing this on a gimbal without needing an additional plate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice while using This is a nice product while the lens (Canon 400mm F2.8 IS II) is in use, however the grip pad is too thick to allow for the hood to be reversed and site flush as designed for storage in the case. It rubs against the hoods edges and with it being a rough material it tears the edge material on the hood.
