I thought this would be useful for other D5000 users I just put in my order. Really Right Stuff is now taking pre-orders for an L-Plate for the D5000. I've been looking for a manufacturer of L-plates for the last month or so and RRS is the only game in town thus far.

After talking with Kirk Photo two weeks ago they informed me they were not manufacturing an L-bracket only a bottom plate for the D5000.

Received an email Friday with tracking info I should have the RSS L-bracket early this week. Since this is actually an early prototype I'll post pictures showing fit on the D5000.

I ordered and received a DS5000 L-plate. I'm sold. The plate has extremely good machining, fits on the camera snugly, works perfectly with the B2-Pro II clamp I bought at the same time.

They shipped the same day I ordered and got it to me quickly for an event I have this weekend.

When I have the extra cash, it's going to RRS for a BH-40.
