Lens Compatibility Guide

The Sidemount Wimberley Head is ideally suited for lenses similar in size to a 300 f/2.8 or 500 f/4.

Smaller Lenses: Many of our customers use smaller collared lenses on the Sidemount; however, when used in conjunction with a large, heavy camera body (e.g. a pro body with vertical grip), these lenses can be difficult to balance properly. Generally, 400 f/5.6 and 300 f/4 fixed or zoom lenses with medium-weight camera bodies work well. Heavier camera bodies on theses lenses can be problematic (even more so on 70-200 f/2.8 and smaller lenses).

Larger Lenses (e.g. 600 f/4, 400 f/2.8 & 800 f/5.6): The Sidemount will safely carry the weight of a very big lens; however, in some cases it is necessary to replace the foot of the lens with a low-profile Lens Replacement Foot. Use the guide below to determine if your lens has special requirements.
