I have the new Nikon 80-400mm lens which comes with a tripod ring. However, when my D800 has got the battery grip on it, I can't use my Manfrotto tripods... The release on the head does not have space enough to open, as it goes against the battery grip.
I have looked for a "raiser" to the Manfrotto plate, but they do not produce such a thing.
Is there a simple solution to this, other than taking off the battery grip when using the 80-400mm?
