Hello,

Can someone advise if the RRS L Bracket made for the D700 will fit fine on a D800E body?

Thanks

The profile and size of the two cameras are quite different, so I'm sure the answer is "no" - but I haven't tried it myself.

See the following thread:

I used the plate on a D300 as well as a D700 before modifying it for the D800. It fit fine on both. The modified version has fit fine on my D800 since August.
