This is most suitable for fixed focal length lenses and if the LLSB is going to be used with only one lens.
It can also be utilized with an extending zoom lens but only at a specific focal length, most probably the longest one where it actually would be more useful.
|The bottom side of the G13-80 rail is almost identical with the older G010-80 except for the shorter first captive slot in order to accommodate the bubble level. As all Hejnar rails is equipped with two M3 stop screws one at each end.|
|The assembly is simple, just by screwing the LLS bracket in the front hole at the lowest position, until the rail is attached to the lens foot. Total weight 203gr (0.45lb) and total cost if purchased as a package around US $ 90.00 plus shipping.|
|The whole assembly can then be mounted and balanced on an Arca Swiss® compatible head.|
