Just got mine . First purchase from really right stuff and I am very pleased with the quality and fit. much better then retrofitting a non-custom plate and just in time for my trip!

I'm not sure that I can explain this well, but I'll try:

My worry about the RRS solution is using it in vertical mode with a cable release.  That's easily the most important reason for an L plate, right?

It looks like you must orient the base screw to make the L part maximally far away to be able to use a cable release in vertical mode on your tripod.  But then when you store the camera in your pack or whatever, you may well want the L part collapsed for compactness.  Otherwise, it might not fit your pack or it might risking banging against a lens.

The RRS L plate for the Sony Alpha A7r handles this consideration well, because you don't need a tool to reposition the screw to vary the width of the plate.

Unfortunately, you do need to carry a tool if you want to reposition RRS's L part for the Sony alpha A6000.
