I agree with Bryan/TDP - this removes my biggest issue with recommending Manfrotto gear.  Personally, though, I'm sticking with RRS...
Yeah, and I'm sure you got a lot of people hooked up with RRS already. Good for the economy, bad for wallets. I have spent the last 35 minutes or so on their website ...  ;D trying to resist the urge to start with something small like a body plate or L-Plate

The L-plate for your camera is one of the new modular designs that converts from body plate to L-plate.  Mine is like that, and it's a great solution!

Just sayin'...   ;)

That's not true any more  ::) . Well, it still is but won't be much longer. I'll need this which is not modular

To make things more fun, manfrotto now also makes AS style plates/clamps.

LOL, my purchasing of RRS was largely based on comments that neuroanatomist had made over the past few months, regarding tripods/heads etc. And I'm very happy with the gear that I did buy. The L plate (on my 5D3 with grip) has made my tripod work so much more flexible.

Although its good that Manfrotto have headed down that path, I'll stick with RRS.

Looks like I managed to completely miss how someone already pointed out how manfrotto has started offering... You know, carry on.... Whoops
