AP-652 Adapter Plate for Nikon 600 f/4 AF-S I
Nikon's large AF-S lenses have tall mounting feet. This makes these lenses top heavy and difficult to pack. In fact, the feet on the 400 f/2.8 AF-S and 600 f/4 AF-S lenses are so tall that it is impossible to fully balance them on a Wimberley tripod head. Fortunately, these feet are easily removed. Wimberley offers special plates that replace the feet of these lenses and also serve as the Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate for the lens. These adapter plates reduce the weight and bulk of your lens and, more importantly, lower the center of gravity of the lens, thus making the lens easier to handle.
These adapter plates are custom designed to fit their designated lens. They have the same dual safety stops found on Wimberley quick- release plates and are milled to accept Wimberley, RRS, and Kirk flash brackets. The plates have 1/4" and 3/8" tapped holes in them for mounting to other tripod heads or monopods. All tools needed to remove your existing lens foot are included.
The AP-652 lowers the overall height of the lens by about 1". Please note that the Nikon 600 f4 AF-S version II uses the AP-452.
Includes a 5 year warranty.
