I was doing the same thing for the last year. I just placed the order for it last friday when it showed up in my Amazon GoldBox. I just got it today. It was raining all afternoon here in Vegas though. What luck out of the 5 days a year it rains here!!

Well, if this isn't how things go in life. I put off buying this lens for 2yrs. I finally took the bite to purchase this lens to use in my photo contest. Wouldn't you know it, my AC just decided to go out and they are replacing as I type. New AC cost $6000....hmmmm. Go figure the odds. I keep telling myself I was suppose to have this lens or the AC would have gone out a week earlier....lmao! Could have bought the 300 2.8....grrrrr!!!
Dang the bad luck!!!

You need to get a LensCoat for that 500mm or you'll scare the birdies away!

Oh, BTW it's neoprene and helps protect your lens and hood, too. That hood alone costs about $500 to replace!

RikWriter wrote in post #7345134 (external link)
Why?

A replacement foot replaces the stock foot that is on the tripod collar. The reason for doing it is that it has a built in quick release plate. This eliminates the need for a separate lens plate and the additional bulk/weight. Several manufacturers make them, I have the Kirk LP-53 (external link).

Inquiring mimes still wanna know.... Why?

Whoops! Never mind...

Sorry Liz. Saw your response was there.... right after posting this.

I understand now. I've had a plate on mine since day one, not sure the brand, probably Kirk or Wimberley. I don't think anyone was making a full replacement foot back when I bought the lens (probably in 2001 or 2002).
