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.
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.
I have spent the last 35 minutes or so on their website ... trying to resist the urge to start with something small like a body plate or L-Plate
I think I caved in after 10min
