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...Show more →
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!!!
