Just bought a Nikkor 70-300mm 4.5-5.6 VR my first lens of this length and VR. I have noticed that when mounted on my tripod I have to realy crank down on the (admittedly cheap, see profile) ball head screw to avoid "droop' of the D90 and lens when fully extended. Question is can/should I attach a foot? Can't visualize how that would work with this lens. Or has time come to splurge on a far better (and expensive!) ball head?
