With built in Arca Swiss plate as well to fit straight into the Wimberley? Nice!

Would seriously be interested in one as my copy currently has the FA* silver mount and would love a matching white one in the original style! Could you price one up for me please? Thanks!
It would be interesting to know your price limit. I understand you and I have different needs here. I have to have a new mount, but I suppose you can manage with the mount you already have?

A company in Norway suggest at least €270 for making this in aluminum with anodized finish.
Well, as I didn't get any answer on this, I have ordered a single one for myself. If you are interested, I can provide you with necessary files and you can find someone in England to make it for you.

Yes, as always

Here is one from a soccer match. It's sharp enough for me. (600mm, f/8.7)

Sorry, but your link doesnt seem to work from here... Seems that it needs a login to Live.com to see the picture

It is cropped to around 1800x1900 pixels, so less than half size. Distance around 30 meters, I think.

I`m gonna take Stig Vidar to Runde , to photograph the *Lundefugl*(puffin) . Well , its gonna be me and him , and two Sherpa`s carrying my FA*300 f.2.8 and his F* 250-600 f.5.6
I'd think that if you announce for voluntary Sherpa's on the forum you would get a lot of responses
