Debra, FWIW, the picture of the RRS D700 L-Bracket that has been on their site lately has generated a fair amount of customer (negative) feedback due to the thickness of the bracket (side). I spoke RRS today and they have decided to redesign the bracket to, I guess, resemble the decidedly more svelte D300 bracket. They expect a couple weeks to get the prototype. In the meantime, I am using my D300 bracket and cushioning it by placing a piece of terrycloth material between the camera and bracket. Works great for now and no marks on my D700. Somewhat Rube Goldberg (or MacGuyer, I guess) but what the heck.
