QR plate options for K-7

I am dreaming about getting an Acratech GP for my K-7. What compatible plate options do you carry for the K-7. Will they work for a K-5 also?

Hello,

The Kirk PZ-134 Quick Release Plate is a compact and rugged quick release plate that is custom designed to snugly fit the Pentax K7 camera (without the B-DG4 Grip attached). This plate fits the Arca-type standard, meaning it fits into quick release adapters using the Arca-Swiss standard.

There is not dedicated plate for the K-5. Compatible with any "Arca-Swiss" type quick release system (e.g. Arca-Swiss, Foba, Graff, Wimberley, etc.). Precision machined from T-6 aluminum, these high-quality plates feature a satin black anodized finish, and are "made in the USA".This "Universal" plate feature an anti-rotation lip just like the camera specific plates, and will accept cameras with 1/4"-20 tripod thread.

The Arca-Swiss L-Bracket is a universal L-shaped bracket that allows you to mount a DSLR or medium-format camera to a head in portrait orientation. One segment of the bracket features a 1/4"-20 screw to which to mount your camera, and both this part and the segment perpendicular feature an Arca-Swiss plate at bottom for mounting to a head.

Thank you Chuck . that is what I was looking for.

FYI I was just looking at the feedback on option two and one of the entries reports that the description is wrong and has no anti-rotaion leap. You may want to pass that to your data base update team.
