  1. Hi

    Looking at getting a wimberley for my 400 F2.8 AFSII

    I have a line on a used version 1 for 400.

    Version two is on back order at wimbnerley.

    I see there are improvements on version 2 but not sure how important they are?

    Anyone with experienece with version 1 and 2.

    How big a diff is there?

    Should i get version 2?

    Does does the version 1 you are looking at come with th eoptional mount for arca swiss quick release plates? It is built in on 2.

    Version 2 is a bit lighter, but I would get on eat that price as long as it had the quicj release mount.
  3. I had version one and a friend had two. I liked one better. The acra swiss clamp isnt built in, but you can add it pretty easily.
