Some collared, telephoto lenses have a foot than can be removed. If your lens has this option, choose one of our foot replacements instead of a lens plate. A replacement foot with built-in-dovetail mounting will be lighter, lower in profile, and provide the best possible stability for your lens. Really Right Stuff foot replacements are precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum and are fully compatible with any Arca-Swiss quick-release system. This foot replaces the Nikon lens collar foot on the Nikkor AF-S 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens and allows hood reversal for storage.
1. To remove the Nikon foot, use the M2.5 hex key tool that comes with the LCF-17 to completely remove the four Nikon mounting screws.
2. To install the LCF-17, use the four original Nikon M3 screws and secure the Really Right Stuff foot to the lens collar.
3. If your mounting screws loosen over time, consider using a drop of Vibratite or Loctite 242 for better security.
Use one of our Long Lens Packages to stabilize your telephoto lenses and improve your shots. And don't believe just us; read this article by Thom Hogan.
