Just a wild hunch but I'm guessing that they will sell many more of the D850-UL plates versus the other.

On a side note, I just ordered a new really Right Stuff plate for my D500 from B&H versus Really Right Stuff simply because of free shipping versus $7 shipping.... No biggie but it does exist. I can go 34 more miles in my Jeep with the savings!

Kirk vs RRS: I have used both and seem to like them equally. In all your experiences: is one better than the other. There is almost $40 difference between the two and as ckcarr said: I can go lot of miles in that $40

Fit and finish, no, they're the same. Comes down to features. I really like, for example, the QD attachment points on RRS, for a strap.

I placed two separate orders directly with RRS. I first bought the 1 piece L bracket and then the 2 piece L bracket for my D850 and there was free USPS shipping on both orders.

I've used this one for years and love that it will fit any of my cameras (D610, D700, D750, D850). The only thing I don't like about it is that the camera can twist on it - particularly in a vertical orientation. The extra lip on a Kirk/RRS bracket are valuable for that reason. I wish that one of the universal brackets would include something solid to stop a camera from rotating when the rubber grip isn't sufficient.

The main point of an A-S fitting, as opposed to the other common standard, Manfrotto, is the anti-twist. I finally moved to Arca-Swiss after a camera twisted on a Manfrotto mount during a virtual tour session. Didn't notice until I got back to the office, had to do an enormous amount of manual stitching to get the tour to work - very lucky that the twist didn't leave blank locations in the spherical panoramas.

Never again.

FYI I just put my Kirk bracket for my D750 on my D850 and it fits snugly! A very very slight gap between the side and the vertical part of the bracket, but minimal - and probably the way I'd position it anyways. The lip along the front fits the front of the D850 almost perfectly.

Great find - there may be some used D750 brackets on eBay / FM, at substantial savings.

For now I am using a 100mm long base plate until I can learn more about the RRS Ultralight L plate. The standard Kirk looks to be better than the standard RRS design for the D850, but the Ultralight would be advantageous as I tend to leave the L plate attached all the time, even when not needing it.

Spending $3300 on the D850 and another $50 on a Bluetooth adapter and another $30 on a neoprene camera strap and another $340 on a couple of XQD cards and $68 for a XQD card reader, and eventually $370 for a MB-D18 battery pack, the additional $140 to buy a top notch L plate is not something I plan to skimp on.

I just got a shipment notification from RRS for the ultralight plate - I guess they've started fulfilling preorders.

My D850 STILL hasn't arrived but I can tell you my RRS ultralight L bracket arrived today.... observations:
1. SO much lighter
2. Simpler layout/ less clutter
3. The packaging looks much more finished/professional
4. I'd ABSOLUTELY recommend others exchange
