Edited to add image

The PZ-109 screws to the bottom of the camera and like your L-bracket, allows it to be mounted to any Arca-Swiss compatible head/platform. It differs from the BL-D200 L-bracket in that it is a flat plate and only allows the camera to be mounted in landscape orientation.

I would expect the top profile of the PZ-109 and BL-D200 to be the same, since both are designed to fit the same camera. I've added an image showing the PZ-109 on a D300. Note the angle of the plate and the gap between it and the camera body. You can see that the PZ-109 does not fit well, which is why I'm surprised that the BL-D200 does fit.

By the way, do I interpret your latest post correctly, to say that you are using the camera mounted to the head using this L-bracket with a 200-400mm VR Nikkor fitted to the camera? That sounds like a very unbalanced set-up, if I may say so.

But anyway, please do let us know if the bracket also fits the D700, which is after all the original subject. Pictures would be great...
