Strange.  I have the original RRS L-plate for the 5D3 - the one everyone has complained about.  I have looked at the photos online and have examined my L plate and cannot see any issue.  I even had other photographer friends look at it and no one can see a problem.  It fits just fine.

The only thing I see that is substantially different between the two is the Kirk plate can be slid to the left to increase the spacing between the left side of the body and the bracket if for some reason you need more there.
On my 40D I have used this space in the past to have a USB tether cable attached to the camera while shooting in the studio in portrait orientation - I noticed numerous subsequent RRS l-brackets that did not allow this.
The bottom plate on the RRS goes all the way across the bottom to the battery door where the Kirk bottom plate looks shorter.
Do you mean to say the L-Bracket would need to be removed to change out the battery?

Can you please post some pics? Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback rsk7.  I think you meant March 18th.  I know RRS revised there initial design for the l-bracket, which probably delayed things.

Yeah.. sorry it was March 18th.

No, it does not cover the battery door. You can get the battery in and out just fine without removing the bracket.

I looked at that thread but when I take a look at my L-plate on my camera, I see no such gap.

Can you please post a similar picture of your L-bracket to the one I linked to?

Kirk L plate photos are here.  They do not have one with the BG-11 yet, likely because the BG-11 is not available yet.

Thanks for the pictures of the Kirk - I have been looking at that plate and am very interested to see what people have to say about it.

I would be very interested to see pictures of the RRS L-bracket mounted on the camera in the same manner as those taken in this shot: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=5446.msg116666#msg116666
