Wimberley AP-554 Replacement foot for Nikon 500 f/4 AF-S (I & II) and VR

The AP-554 is available at Outdoorphoto and it has the advantage of greater clearance between the body of the lens and the foot, making it easier to use the foot as a handle for your lens. In addition, it is longer, allowing you to balance your lens properly when using lightweight camera bodies. It will allow you to balance your lens with all pro and prosumer Nikon camera bodies, even when using teleconverters. It is the only replacement foot on the market for these lenses that allows this comprehensiveness in balancing. It lowers the overall height of the 500mm lens by 1" and the 200-400mm lenses by 0.1".

  • Replaces Stock Foot on Rotation Collar

  • Better Balance for Gimbal Head Use
  • Shaped for Use as Lens Handle
  • Serves as Arca Swiss-style Plate
  • Tapped Holes: 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16

Wimberley AP-554 Replacement foot

The Wimberley AP-554 Replacement Foot replaces the stock foot on the rotation collar of the Nikon 500mm f/4 AF-S (I, II & VR) and 200-400mm f/4 AF-S (VR) lenses. The low-profile foot creates a lower centre of gravity for your long lens & camera body, making for a better balance when you use the lens with a gimbal head (such as the Wimberley Head or the Sidekick).

Taller than the Wimberley AP-553, the AP-554 provides enough clearance between the lens body and the foot so you can use it as a lens handle. Its longer 5.1" length makes it better balanced with smaller DSLR camera bodies, and it's compatible with all Nikon professional and prosumer bodies – even as the lenses are used with teleconverters (see Compatibility below). In designing this replacement foot, Wimberley used finite material analysis to determine the best balance between stiffness and weight savings. While keeping the foot as light as was appropriate, the manufacturer refused to sacrifice any necessary rigidity.

The bottom of the foot is milled to accept an Arca Swiss-style quick-release clamp, and it also features tapped holes for direct attachment to both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 studs on tripod heads and monopods.
