I'm looking to get a Gitzo 1542T with Markin Q3T ball head. I'm not familiar with higher quality heads so have a few questions.

The Markin has a lever or screw release - which is preferred?

I also want landscape and portrait options - is that what an L bracket is for? Is the Really Right Stuff L bracket something that would work?

It looks like the L bracket attaches directly to the camera. Does the bracket also directly attach to the Q3T or is there another part I need that goes between the bracket and head?
