Photographer Michael Kirk was not able to find photographic products to suit his specific needs, so he decided to develop his own and Kirk Enterprise Solutions or KES, as they are commonly known as, was born.
Using the Kirk replacement lens foot on a large lens will decrease the overall height of the lens, lowering the centre of gravity and making it easier to achieve proper balance when used on a gimbal head and/or ball-head. The Kirk LP-55, like all of the Kirk lens feet, have a dovetail built-in, ensuring the product is not only lightweight but provides the best possible stability.
When using your lens with a monopod or tripod the Kirk replacement lens collar improves the rotation smoothness while also adding greater support than the original lens collar. The Nikon 80-400mm lens collar features an integrated Arca-Swiss-style base plate enabling you to mount it to any compatible quick-release clamp.
With regards to Kirk lens accessories, a replacement lens foot is sure to be on the list of outdoor photography supplies a photographer would need in order to get the best out of your photographic gear.
