|The 50-140mm zoom shown at the top of this photo has two options, a tall and short version of the tripod foot. Below is the 100-400mm zoom with the foot attached.|
There are two mounts made for the Fuji zooms, a typical tall mount and a shorter mount. Personally I preferred the shorter mount, since it allowed the lens to fit comfortably in my camera bag with the foot attached. The photo below shows the two Hejar Photo release mounts for the Fuji 50-140mm zoom compared to the bulky contraption of a standard Fuji mount on the right fitted out with an auxiliary release plate.

|This photo also shows a comparison between the replacement Hejar Photo quick-release mount and the standard Fuji mount with added adapter.|
|The low mount for the 100-400mm zoom still allows the lens hood to be attached for storage and fit more compactly in a camera bag.|
I particularly like the low profile replacement for the tripod foot on the 100-400mm zoom. I had always felt that the standard stubby foot that comes with that lens is was much too small for the size and weight of the lens. Both of the Hejar Photo replacements for this add much more stable gripping power to the foot.
The plates are fitted with two safety stops to prevent accidentally sliding off the tripod mount. The are finely machined from aluminum with a black anodized surface. They are all 3.725" long.
The Hejar Photo quick-release mounts for Fuji zooms are available directly from their web site at Hejar Photo. They are also available on Ebay.
