I've tried what @PEKA62 suggested. I moved the screw to the other side. It works much better and it's a great solution. However, I don't think the Novoflex tripod adapter is very secure when rotating the lens.

On A7R II, perhaps it does not matter much .. but was on the A7 as I thought about this and then I have not thought more of this .. A7 is very weak at this point

Edit: It works .. what an idiot I am
the fit is not optimal .It probably not matter much

Don't know if this is the best way .. camera and lens will be more front-heavy on the tripod with the plate directing under camera instead ?

not very secure when rotating the lens.. do you mean when you Zoom or focusing the lens on tripod ?

Ronny
Just remove the small screws on the base of the Novoflex clamp and the base can be moved so it is under the lens with the clamp screw on the left side.

Nice shots Ronny, looks like you're getting comfortable with the lens.

Low sun strong reflection on white ship makes sky underexposed. I.e. not me manipulating :-)

Not to disrupt the thread of gorgeous photos - and I read the posts suggesting the Leitax mount and Vello tripod collar -

Is there any reason the standard tripod mount on the Metabones adapter doesn't work well enough?
Is it more a matter of balance on the tripod, with a collar-mounted adapter (having the extended foot)?

I've got one of these inbound and would like to be reasonably prepared.
TIA
