This lens foot was exactly what I needed for my Nikon 70-200mm FL lens. When I installed this on my lens I realized how deficient the factory foot actually was. I can not believe how much nicer it is using the built in arca compatible foot and the strap port on the bottom. I can quickly mount it to my monopod or gimble within seconds and tether with the open hole design for peace of mind. I will ordered another one for my 500mm f4 lens. Thank you ProMedia gear for great customer service and premium products. 5-star product!
works great on 300 f/2.8 vr
I ordered this replacement foot before I ordered the Nikon 500mm PF lens, based on the reviews stating that the original foot can accidentally detach.
I am so glad I did. This new foot is perfectly engineered for an excellent fit. It is far more secure, well designed and a real “must have” for owners of this lens.
I recently purchased a Nikon Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 FL lens and love it, except for one small detail: The OEM foot is too small and doesn't have an Arca dovetail. The ProMediaGear PLXN1 fixes that. It's long enough that I have plenty of room to position my camera on my PMG ballheads and gimbals. It attaches by sliding snugly onto the OEM collar and locked in place via a 1/4 20 hex screw, making for very solid attachment. While I like the "quick release" feature of the OEM mount, PMG's design eliminates the possibility of forgetting to tighten the OEM lock knob. Eliminating the knob also simplifies and slims down the design. The QD/SS2 strap port and safety tether loops are welcome features. It machined with typical PMG precision and very solid. I plan on purchasing another when I pick up my 500mm PF Nikkor.
I am planning a review on YouTube soon - and spoiler alert: I love this product. But I do want to let folks know that this foot is not compatible with the Z-mount lenses - at least not the new Z 70-200 f/2.8. Nikon has modified the foot mount to use a much wider dovetail than the previous F-mount counterparts. Another bad move on Nikon's part to ruin aftermarket compatibility. I hope that PMG offers a newly designed foot for the Z-mount dovetail connection soon. There are others already available but I strongly believe that the ProMediaGear foot with the QD port is worth waiting for.
