Re: 40-150mm f2.8 Pro lens foot..

Arca-Swiss plates are easy to come by on ebay, but I would have liked it to be like the 300 F4 lens though. However, design failings in the 40-150 have been learnt & improved on in the 300 F4 lens, but I like & use my 40-150 lens (with MC14) most of the time. BTW, as mentioned above, it is much better value if you buy the 40-150 lens with the MC14 as a combined package.

Actually, I leave an Arca-Swiss plate on my 40-150 lens & when using the E-M1 Mk II with the HLD-9 battery grip attached the added height plate allows the camera outfit to sit almost level on the table if putting it down.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
