The RT-1 is an optional accessory tripod collar ring designed specifically for the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR lens. When shooting with a D-SLR and the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR lens, the RT-1 can be used to attach the lens to a tripod instead of attaching the camera's body directly to the tripod. Attaching the lens to the tripod instead of the D-SLR body can be done when additional support is desired, such as when shooting with a teleconverter.
This product should be included with the 70-200 f/4 lens...period!

Overpriced!!! Do you really want that much weight on the body. Most quick release systems can't handle it.

Asking this much money for what is little more than a simple piece of metal cannot be justified. Nikon makes complete lenses for this price. At the same time it is highly desirable to have. I see a huge opportunity for 3rd-party manufacturers here.
