Hi, I recently purchased a olympus 60mm macro lens with a Velbon focusing rail.

I quickly realised that the rail could also offer better support for my 100-300mm lens when

on a tripod, by moving the centre of gravity.

(Sorry for the quality of the photo, only had my cell phone)

PS I do know that you can buy a tripod collar form Germany, however i think this will work for me.

That will do VERY nicely with that 2 point support, however the German which I have is much more portable when used on a monopod.
