p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · What foot for Nikon 200mm f2.0 VRII ...?


I am going to replace foot on Nikon 200mm f2.0 and would like to hear some 1st hand experience and suggestions based on them.

Would like to be able to reverse hood with replacement foot in place. And to be able to carry lens by the foot using it like a handle.

So far I am aware of RRS, Kirk and Hajnar replacement foot. Which one would fit my above mentioned needs?

Any other worth mentioning?

Thanks for help!

Hejnar photo makes two different feet for the 200 f2. One sits flush with the mount and extends longer but still fits under the reversed hood. The other one is a few dollars more and extends out further so you can use it as a handle but it prevents the reversed hood.

I went with the one that allows the hood reversed as it allows for easier storage in a backpack and gives you something more substantial to grab onto/tie into with a BR strap. I do wish I had more of a handle but for me portability was more important.

I have no experience with the RRS or Kirk.

RRS foot for this lens is, like the stock foot, too close to the body to get your hand around to use like a handle.

I use the RSS as a handle all the time. Maybe it's because I have small fingers?

I guess you use RRS and not RSS.

What is the spacing between RRS foot and a lens body? Even if you have very thin fingers seems like very tight "handle" solution.
