*Note about fit on Leica M8: With MC-L mounted as close to side of body as possible, L-Plate restricts free movement of camera strap.
**Note about fit on Mamiya 7: With the MC-L mounted snugly against the left side of the camera (from the photographer's point of view), there is not sufficient clearance to allow use of the cable release.
***Note about fit on Canon Powershot G3/G5: With the MC-L mounted snugly against the left side of the camera (from the photographer's point of view), there is not sufficient clearance to allow the LCD screen to swing completely open. The screen can still be opened and pivoted. It also obstructs the battery door.

Ratings & Reviews
Works well with Mamiya 7 as cable release is different than in 7ii.
Contrary to what the RRS says about possible limitation on use of a cable release on Mamiya 7 and 7ii models with this L-Plate, the plate will work fine with the 7 model because it has the cable release socket in a different location on the camera body than for the 7ii model.
