RRS says you -can- use their plate overhead

The NEX-7's LCD can't be fully extended for use overhead and this ought to provide the needed clearance (there's no clearance problem with the RRS L-bracket for waist-level shooting). [ RRS says they aren't going to fix it... close enough is apparently good enough, even for high priced accessories. ]

The earlier link to RRS's page for the NEX-7 L-plate states:

The gap below the LCD screen provides clearance for the screen to be tilted up or down; with L-plate installed, you can still hold the camera over your head and swivel the screen so that it can be seen from below.

Are you saying the screen can't be "fully" extended despite what RSS states?
