If you will be shooting the Nikon Z 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 VR S Lens from a tripod you’re going to want a replacement foot.  As I write this post the lens is already arriving in the hands of Nikon shooters across the globe, such exciting time after a long, long wait.

To date, there has not been mention of a replacement foot for the Nikon Z 100-400.  Well I have some good news for you, they are out there, you just need to know where to look.

Nikon Z 100-400 Replacement Foot

The good news is there are now available options for replacement feet for the Nikon Z 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 VR S Lens.

I can 110% confirm this for the Kirk replacement foot as I have the new 70-200 2.8/Z 100-400 foot attached to both my Nikon Z 70-200 2.8 and Nikon Z 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens and both fit perfectly.

The replacement foot from Kirk is the least expensive option.

If you are a fan of Really Right Stuff and don’t mind forking out an additional $40 they have a replacement foot for the Nikon Z 100-400 as well.  Be sure to order the foot provided in my link below NOT the Nikon VR/VRII foot for the Nikon 70-200 2.8 f-mount lens as it will not fit.

Option 2: Really Right Stuff Z 100-400 Replacement Foot – Available From B&H $140

Option 3: There is one other low budget solution for tripod mounting the Z 100-400 and that is a lens plate. I’ve always found that plates held on by one screw tend to allow the plate to twist.  For an extra $40 I buy the replacement foot, it’s one less thing to worry about while in the field.

If you own a Nikon Z camera and shoot action or sports the Nikon Z 100-400 is a lens that you really should consider adding to your bag.  Its performance is exceptional even with the Nikon Z TC-1.4X and Nikon Z TC-2.0X teleconverters.

I performed a field test on this lens with both teleconverters on my Nikon Z6II.  I’m confident that you will find the review and sample images to be very convincing.  You can read that post at Nikon Z 100-400 | Teleconverter Field Test 1.4 & 2.0.
