Re: Sigma 100-400 / Tripod socket

That's great.  Only draw back is, try and balance the lens+camera, shooting upward at 78-80 degrees and you will find the Center of Gravity is further back than the QR base of the collar.  If you can mount the collar in reverse direction, then it may solve the balancing for upward shooting.  Try it out, as I had use collar before on other lenses with the same problem, unable to shoot the moon properly as the COG is nearer to the base of the camera the further you point upward.

Thanks and Cheers.  Do feedback if you can shoot in a stable condition facing upward.

Upward moon shoot or Astro, the lens has to tilt up and COG is further back.
