Comments about Acratech Acratech 2-1/2" Long Arca Type Quick Release Plate for Lenses.:

This is one finely crafted piece of metal. And it should be for this price! Seriously, though, if I am going to trust my heavy gear on a tripod, I want it attached to something I can trust. This plate passes the test.

My only concern is that the screw is not trapped; it separates from the plate when not installed. The plate ought to come with two screws for that inevitable time when I lose one.

Comments about Acratech Acratech 2-1/2" Long Arca Type Quick Release Plate for Lenses.:

I attached this to my Nikon 80-200 f2.8 to use as a QR for my monopod. Works better than I had hoped -- no slipping, stays firmly attached and adds essentially no weight to the setup. Does not get in the way when using the lens handheld.

Comments about Acratech Acratech 2-1/2" Long Arca Type Quick Release Plate for Lenses.:

Very solid plate for larger lenses, at a reasonable price. I bought this for a 400mm f/3.5 Nikon lens, and it works perfectly. It holds the lens very firmly, and is long enough to allow me to position the ballhead clamp so that it balances the camera and lens on my tripod.
