just got a canon 500mm lens and wanted to get the right gear to use it - wimberley 2 head. Put it all together and with just one set screw this P10 plate didn't seem strong enough for the lens. ... I need a P-50. I have that one on order now. Will use the P-10 with a smaller lens, so it won't be wasted. wish I had done a little more research before my order.

As it is mandatory for the Wimberley Tripod head I purchased would have been best if it came with the head

    It works great to have this attached to the tripod foot of longer lenses. Makes for quick switching of lenses with camera attached.

          Comments about Wimberley P10 Quick Release Plate:

          I use this with my EF300 f/4. The anti-twist flanges work well. Other plates without these would eventually twist and loosen, no matter how much you tighten them.

          Seems to be well made with very close tolerances, as if it were an aircraft part.

              This is a precision-made lens mount for arca swiss tripod mounts. The lens mount has removable stops to prevent the bracket from sliding out of the mounting clamp, and has a lip at the end to prevent the clamp from twisting on the lens mount.

                        Very easy to slide on and off once it's mounted to the lens. It also has a flange that keeps it from rotating like other QR plates do under heavy use. I really appreciate that!

                                  I use Wimberley clamps almost exclusively now. There are no advantages I have seen for the more expensive lens specific plates from others. Each plate fits a wide range of lenses, even many that are not on Wimberley's list. As always fit and finish are perfect.

                                    As it is mandatory for the Wimberley Tripod head I purchased would have been best if it came with the head

                                      Use on Wimberley Sidekick with RRS BH-55 ball head. It allows one to slide position of lens along axis for perfect balance.
