One of the reasons I decided upgrading to the new M11 is that I will be using it as my dedicated landscape camera now.
So, getting a robust and well designed L-bracket was a must for me. I'm not affiliated in any way with really right stuff and paid full price for this L-bracket.

I'm very happy with it. I thought I would not like the integrated grip support but it's a great fit. (even better than Leica's own handgrip for the M11)

I may actually use this L-bracket when shooting with my heavy lenses just because of the nice grip it provides.

Here are some pictures on the RRS L-bracket for the M11:

I am also using the M11 as my primary landscape camera with the additional EVF. Curious as to which lenses you have decided to use for this purpose.

I have also recently received the RRS L-Bracket and agree that it is better than the Leica equivalent with a small weight penalty. The biggest advantage is allowing for vertical compositions which the Leica bracket does not provide.

My lenses are: Voigtlander 15/4.5 III, Leica 21/3.4 SEM, Voigtlander 28/2 II, Leica 50/1.4 Lux and Leica 90/2 APO.
I usually bring my Contax 100-300 adapted to the Leica mount as well.

I'm thinking about replacing the 50/1.4 for the Voigtlander 50/2 APO though.
I have both and I think the Leica handgrip is a better match to the camera aesthetics. It's a great match for the M11 but because of the lack of the vertical plate, it's not ideal for landscapes. Well, I could turn the camera vertically but it's not very sturdy on windy days.

The RRS L-bracket with grip feel very solid, all metal and the grip feels even better imo though.

Thanks for the info on your current kit. My is similar with the WATE, 21 SEM, 28 Lux, 50 Leica APO and 90 APO. Easily portable and handles most landscape situations.

For me, Kase Magnetic Circular Filters 82 mm Thread; WATE with Leica Adapter and Step Rings for the others. A relatively small package.

I still use the LEE Seven5 Proglass IRND filters and polarizer. It works with all my lenses including the CV 15/4.5 III since I removed its built-in hood. I don't see any color shift with these filters including the 10-stop!

I do not use the collar as I never thought it was needed even with the lens extended.

Fred,

I use the RRS L bracket on my Leica Q2 and Leica Q2M, along with my Fujifilm GFX 100s...

They make fantastic products...
