NEW- October 8th 2005
When enough people ask, clearly one should respond, so I spend Saturday with a borrowed Nikon 10.5mm to make a perfect bracket for it. After messing around a bit I did settle on the main space after the focusing ring. including the new screw and vingnut design for assembling the pieces.
The Nikon 10.5mm bracket weigh about 110 grams, its a perfect bracket for both every day work, backpacking and hiking..
