I posted a query one month ago about the utility of L-Brackets. From what I learned in your advise, I'd like to get one.

Either a Kirk or an RRS because they are one piece anodized aluminum. My camera is a D7000. I would use the bracket only when I do product shots or portraits. I would use a 60mm G lens -- relatively small.

My question is this. Can I use the non-grip bracket when the grip is attached to the camera. In either brand, the cost of a bracket that would fit my gripped camera body is nearly $200, whereas I could buy the bracket to fit the body only would $50 less.

I won't use this setup often, and I certainly wouldn't want access to swap out the grip battery with the bracket on. Can I use the non-grip bracket on the gripped camera, or is there some physical obstructions?

I don't tether. I don't often swap batteries in the grip. I want to save money. The bracket would be attached only infrequently, and certainly only in my house.
