Hey, I haven't gotten my Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 lens yet, but I want to go ahead and get a plate, so it'll be ready to go as soon as it arrives.

I checked Really Right Stuff's website and didn't see anything. Do any of you awesome folks know of a plate that will surely work?

Thanks,

Beau

Your tripod has no plate? Sorry but it seems odd you're looking for a plate to go with a tripod collar. Usually the tripod comes with a plate (whatever style you have) and you attach that to the tripod collar.

I tried the RRS AS plate that I had used for my Canon 70-200; Olympus has the foot extruding from the base at a slanted angle, which prevents the stop bar at the end of the plate from properly supporting the end of the base.
Very annoying, since I'm sure this would affect many other AS plates as well.
Secondary "complaint": The length of the foot is shorter than with the Canon L lens, slightly more than half. This is another factor that makes my existing plate a poor fit. Will use it for now regardless until something better comes along.

All day long at B&H, Adorama,...etc. The many companies that make ballheads and clamps usually make standalone plates.

I've put the RRS L-84 on my 40-150 f2.8 it fits fine with no problems. It came off my 100-400 Canon lens

I have put the plate that came with my Capture (Peak Design) onto the lens foot. Fits very well. Have to try it on the tripod!!!! Also allows me to hook the PD leash/cuff to the foot to distribute the carrying weight away from the camera alone.
