The Wimberley AP-554 Replacement Foot fits Nikon Lenses 200-400 f/4 AF-S VR, and 500 f/4 AF-S versions I & II, & VR.
The AP-554 is an alternative to the AP-553 plate, with 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 light-weight camera bodies. It will allow you to balance your lens with all pro and prosumer Nikon camera bodies, even when using teleconverters (see chart below for details).
Wimberley custom low-profile replacement feet replace the factory foot on the rotation collar of your lens and serve as Arca-Swiss style quick-release plates. This replacement foot makes your lens handle better on a tripod head and makes it easier to pack.
Using the Wimberley replacement foot on your large lens decreases the overall height of the lens, lowering the center of gravity so that it achieves proper balance when used on a gimbal head such as the Wimberley Head or the Sidekick.
