I have seen a number of posts, including for sale ads, that were less than complimentary of the issue Nikon tripod foot. None, however, stated what the problem, or problems, with that foot seem to be. Can anyone with actual experience post a reason why there is a problem with the Nikon foot? It appears that the only alternative is an after market item that sells for around $250.
It depends on which lens and foot you are considering. Some are ok, others not so much.
