I've found myself wanting some type of rail that would connect the body of my F5 and any lense with a tripod collar. I have noticed a lot of vibration when I use longer lenses in addition to teleconverters or the like.

It seems to me the setup would be much more stable/stiffer if I had a rail that mounted to the body and the lense collar at the same time and then mount that on the tripod.

It would have to be adjustable in length to fit different lenses as well as the length change you would have when attaching teleconverters, macro extension tubes, etc.

Does this make sense and is there such a beast? Who makes it?

I'm using the Mafrotto 3246 tripod & 3275 Geared Head w/RC4 Quick Release.
