#2. "RE: D700 using L-mounting bracket from Kirk or RRS" In response to In response to 0
The L-Brackets for the grips are designed to allow the battery to be removed and installed without removing the L-Bracket. I have had an L-Bracket on my D300w/MB-D10 and D700w/MB-D10 since I purchased them and have not taken a bracket off other than to clean the camera body. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
