Sorry RockvilleBob, I haven't had any experience of this, but I too would like to hear if anyone else has.

I use the Acratech Universal L bracket with all my camera bodies. I stopped buying dedicated L-brackets years ago as I was endlessly purchasing then selling the gear a year or two later at a loss. I haven't purchased a dedicated L-bracket in years and the benefit of being able to use the same bracket for multiple bodies is for me a plus not a minus. I *DO purchase dedicated bottom plates though. Fortunately, they are much more cost-effective and on occasion a generic brand with a lip works just as well.

YMMV

Problem with the Acratech L braket is that it has a big screw sticking out of the side. I want a bracket that I can put on my K-3 with grip that I can leave on full time. 30 to 40% of my photography is with a tripod.
