Used the quick release head for a while, but went to the screw head as it is smaller and lighter and doesn't leave an annoying plate on the camera.

I wouldn't dream of using a tripod without a quick release head. I use the RRS L-bracket on the E-M5 and I'm forever switching back and forth between landscape and portrait mode. I couldn't bear unscrewing and screwing every five minutes.

I don't find the plates at all annoying. When hand-holding, it gives me just a little more security with something with texture to grab hold of, especially the L-bracket.

Also, I use the BH-30, not the BH-25, as I find it a lot more manageable. I have owned the BH-25 since it first came out but I don't use it much.
