    For what it's worth, my Kirk L bracket on the 5Diii with battery grip attaches at both the bottom of the camera AND to the hand strap mounting bracket, so I've never noticed any camera shake issues in portrait format.

    lol my user issues are the material in the bracket is aluminum and it flexes. The other issue is a design issue with the grooves facing the wrong direction for transitions to a collared lens from the camera body.
    Simple. I did not design or cause these issues as you may believe.

    You seem to be a minority of 1 on the issue.

    Oh, no, I have heard and read others that make the same point quite often. Trust me if one person experiences a flaw there are bound to be a lot of others with the same outcome that tried and discovered the same limits. I doubt the grooves in the bracket go the other direction for everyone else using the bracket since this is a built in property of the design and construction. lol I suppose you are just not doing enough research maybe. At any rate, I offered my opinion and you offered yours.
    I also showed a test that will demonstrate my point if you care to learn more about the subject. If not, so be it.

    Frankly I don't understand you whole "groves in the wrong direction" theory. What groves in an L bracket are causing you issues?
