Larger upper rail setting possible with Arca Swiss mount?
short version: Does the Arca Swiss mount allow for a larger upper rail setting compared to the standard mounting plate from the NN3 II set? Some 5-8mm more would probably be enough.
I'm using a Canon 17-55mm/f2.8 on my Canon 450D. I read before buying that the upper rail length might not suffice for this configuration, but still went for the NN3 II due to compactness/weight preferences. Since the NPP point moves toward the sensor for longer focal lengths, I can use this lens at about 22mm, so I'm not regretting my choice! I'm contemplating whether to get the Arca Swiss mount for faster camera mounting, would it also allow me to use the lens at 17mm as a by-product, or is the T adapter the only thing that helps? (I won't be running out of lower rail space with the Arca Swiss mount AFAICT.)
Many thanks for your product! Also, I should mention that this very helpful forum definitely influenced my buying decision! :thumbup:
