Second look (who am I kidding), after several looks I noticed there are no focal length markings, which by reference to 70-200 and 70-300 layout should be visible wrapping over the top. Excitement fading

I need more! You see, I have grown and you have remained static. You're not willing to change. You sit idly by while my new friend, Nikon, keeps growing.
Wow ! You must indeed be a man among men ! I've been in photography over thirty years and rarely can I keep up with the mk II. Be aware your new love may just be after your wallet, especially as she is so young and you no doubt, are a tad older
Thanks for the help everyone. I've decided to order the 1" Kirk and the Sunwayfoto (Gitzo replacement clamp) from B&H. I liked the RRS stuff a lot and started an order, but it was $76 more to start for the two QR clamps and the shipping options where the deal breaker at another $30 with an uncertainty of USPS or UPS charging me brokerage fees entering Canada. I was already placing an order at B&H with shipping at only $9 and it remained the same price when the QRs where added.
Did RRS have a QR clamp to convert your Gitzo? Are you also getting an L-Bracket to attach that 1" kirk to with your sling strap? Maybe look at a Kirk also or eBay - lots of L-Brackets show up there.
Yes. I added a B2-Pro clamp with reducer bushing to a GH1780 (no QR), screws to the disc and pretty much covers it.
So if the real number is about 1.5 lenses per body.... that would mean half the bodies with 1 lens and half with two.... or 25 percent with 3 lenses and 75 percent with 1.... However you slice it, there are a lot of cameras out there with only 1 lens, and this goes to prove one of the things I have been saying all along... we are not normal and do not represent the typical camera user.
Yes, there are many forum members that are well outside the norm, which is why it's not useful to extrapolate the priorities of forums to those of the general EOS owner or overall EF market. Claiming that I'd like a 600 f/5.6 prime or a mirrorless camera with specific attributes and claiming that they'd sell like hotcakes if they made one to satisfy my feature list is not realistic. Would I look into a 600 f/5.6 for 2k? Absolutely! Would I buy one? Yes, if it proves to have no compatibility issues, is handholdable and has better IQ than the 100-400.
