Now that is interesting. I just posted that I liked mine, but it was mainly due to the increased width they decided to use. I didn't view it at the angle you did. I have the same gap and SH!T a nice permanent mark running down the length of the body. Tightening it further will NOT fix this propblem.
I don't know why flange rests on an elevated ridge. It's that ridge that digs into the camera. If the ridge was gone and the flange adjusted outward by a tiny bit, it would seem the problem would be gone. So not only is the plate cutting into the body of the camera, it's causing the camera to point slightly downward when clamped.
Not sure what PR explanation is going to make me feel better about this.
Mines going back John. No engineering explanation can make this right.
I agree. I'm not looking for an explanation as it's clearly defective. Even if there was some design rationale, it's impossible to explain how a camera plate that un-levels a level platform is somehow "OK". I'm looking at what RRS is going to do to fix it. I'm definitely not thrilled with the marks on the camera. I know many people felt that Canon gouged us with the price of the 5DIII, but I didn't expect RRS to "gouge" me too!!!
