universal plain arca swiss L this time... what do you think of it ?

The universal brackets do not fit as tightly like the L-brackets made specifically for a camera. The latter can be left on all the time without being an obstruction. Universal brackets are more in the way.

On the other end you don't have to buy a new universal bracket each time you buy a camera. like you have to with an L=bracket optimized for a specific camera. The price to pay for the tight fit.
