About the AP-553 Replacement Lens Foot
The AP-553 replaces the stock foot on Nikon Lenses (See list below, Image of compatibility chart, or our website). When installed this support lowers the overall height of the 500mm lens by 2" and the 200-400mm lenses by 1.25". The AP-553 is precision machined to slide right into an Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp. It also has 1/4" and 3/8" tapped holes for mounting to non-quick-release tripod heads and monopods. All replacement feet feature the same dual safety stops and flash bracket compatibility as our lens plates.
The AP-553 has generally been replaced with the AP-554 which is more versatile in the lenses it supports and works better as a handle for your lens.

About Wimberley Replacement Feet
We use finite element analysis validated by empirical data when we design our feet. This process allows us to optimize the weight to stiffness ratio. Other manufacturers often reduce weight by removing material in ways that are convenient for the machining process or aesthetic design while ignoring stiffness performance resulting in rigidity below our quality standards.
Not compatible with most Manfrotto or Gitzo clamps
