Some collared, telephoto lenses have a foot that 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 1.5" RRS Dovetail Standard
. This foot replaces the Nikon lens collar foot on the Nikkor 200-400mm VR and VR-II, 300mm/f2.8 VR and VR-II lenses.
1. To remove the Nikon foot, use the M2.5 hex key tool that comes with the LCF-14 to completely remove the four Nikon mounting screws.
2. To install the LCF-14, use the four original Nikon M3 screws and secure the RRS 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.
