Right for Some: the Wimberley AP-620 Replacement Low Foot for Sony
For folks who use their 200-600s on a tripod all or most of the time, the Wimberley AP-620 Replacement Low Foot for Sony is clearly the best choice. This low foot is very light at only 4.5 ounces and like all the Wimberley stuff, is elegantly designed. It is secured to the lens via a single 1/4-20 screw and thus, is no longer quick-release removable.
The AP-620 Replacement Foot fits the Sony 200-600 f/5.6 lens and serves three main purposes:
1. It is somewhat stiffer than the factory tripod mounting foot connected to a lens plate, thus reducing flex and vibration (or not …)
2. Functions as the Arca-Swiss style lens plate.
3. Creates the ideal geometry for using your lens on the Levered-clamp Flexshooter Pro and, as above, allows you to balance your rig optimally.
Note: Wimberley lens plates are compatible with Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamps such as those made by Wimberley, Kirk Enterprises, Really Right Stuff, Arca-Swiss, Markins, and others. I use the Wimberley P-20 Plate on my Sony 100-400, the Sony 70-200, and my Canon 180mm macro lens and recommend it for most intermediate and zoom telephoto lenses.
