Re: Fix for Sony 70-350 lens droop on tripod

To all: yes, this is like adding a foot to the lens. I don't know whether the aftermarket foot for the 70-300 can be used. Maybe a foot for the 70-350 will be developed.

Front end of lens is not supported and is able to move freely. A support point could be created between the zoom and focus rings.

This drooping problem was originally observed while using the 55-210 lens with a 1.7x teleconverter trying to shoot the eclipse a couple years ago.  It was like I needed to add windage to the shot.

Thanks for for your thoughtful comments
