I’m delighted with the Really Right Stuff LCF-11 Replacement Tripod Foot for Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. The Nikon-supplied foot is partly dead weight, because it has no dovetail—a plate has to be attached to it for tripod use, which adds weight and height and decreases stability.
The LCF-11 can be removed or attached in seconds without tools thanks to the generous knob. Its built-in dovetail slots into any Really Right Stuff clamp or similar compatible clamp, just like the BD810-L bracket on my Nikon D810.
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 AF-S Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR (2016) lens.
1. To remove the Nikon foot, unscrew the lock knob, depress the spring-loaded tab, and slide the foot forward.
2. To install the LCF-11, slide it on from front to back until you feel it snap into place, then tighten the lock knob.
Compatible with AF-S Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, or a Really Right Stuff LC-A10, LC-A11, LC-A12, LC-A13, and LC-A14 replacement collar.
