Hi Everyone,
After mulling over the various long focal lengths to purchase for years, I finally made up my mind and paid for a Af-S 500mm f/4 VR II.

I spent half the day yesterday testing a demo lens at my local store with the TC20EII combo on my D800. Contrary to what I expected focusing was reasonably fast and even instantaneous when the target was a contrasty enough.

Lens and the TC will hopefully arrive at my local store within the next few days. I got all the support sorted (Gitzo 3530+ Arca-Swiss Z1 + Wimberly Sidekick), but I know nothing about replacement feet!

I'm happy with the RRS foot on my 70-200 and the Kirk collar on my AF-S 300 f/4

What are the differences between Wimberly, RRS and Kirk replacement feet? Are they all the same?

Thanks in advance!

Regards
Dinil
