I always have a neck strap on my camera. Conversely, I only use an L bracket when I know I'm going to be needing it (meaning, when I'm also carrying my tripod). That's maybe 5-10% of the time. So, I would have gone with a Kirk L bracket but I wrote them and they confirmed that their L bracket doesn't allow enough clearance for a neck strap to remain attached to the camera's left lug. In order to use the Kirk L bracket, I'd need to remove the neck strap from the camera lug and move it to the Kirk-supplied lug each and every time I attached the Kirk L bracket. And vice-versa when I removed the Kirk L bracket. Too much fiddling around, particularly since my neck strap of choice is the Optech Pro strap with Pro Loops. The Pro Loops are significantly more hassle to remove and reattach.
Once an email to Really Right Stuff confirmed that their Rev A is their final design as far as the 5D Mark III is concerned, I ultimately decided to give my business to PromediaGear. My new L bracket shipped this morning and I anxiously await its arrival.
Should the day ever come that the folks at RRS come to their senses and release a 5D Mark III design with radiused camera-hugging curves that is of the same quality and beauty as their previous efforts, I will consider supporting that decision by once again giving them my business. But, based on the response I received to my email enquiry, I'm left dumbfounded how the "Ferrari" of camera gear seems completely satisfied putting out a Ford Pinto.
