Tripod Mount for Panasonic 100-300 lens
May 7, 2012

Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered this tripod mount for my panny 100-300 lens.

It cost just under $100 us including shipping. I have noticed that my GH2 (and E-M5) vibrate at the slightest touch when attached to even a fairly heavy tripod via the camera body tripod socket.

I have been using the manual remote shutter release when using the tripod. I am hoping that this mount will provide a little more stability by distributing the fore-aft weight better on the tripod head. If not, then that is $100 down the tubes.
