The Leofoto LS-200 lens mount is designed to support longer lenses without a proprietary tripod when using a tripod. This prevents the entire weight of the lens from hanging on the bayonet of your camera. Balancing on a gimbal head is easier when using a LS-200 lens support. The long and wide rails with Arca-Swiss quick coupler can fix the lens mount on any Arca-Swiss compatible tripod head. You can also screw the base rails directly onto a tripod with a 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch tripod screw.
