I bought one of those. My advice: just don't. I found that once installed on the lens, the tightening screw didn't fit properly because the mount was not designed to fit the girth if the actual lens and once tightened, I could not rotate the lens at all. I got the Nikon foot and it is worth it.

Thanks everyone.... just what I suspected, you get what you pay for!  I'll try long exposures without the foot to begin with, and bite the bullet for a quality collar if necessary.
