Re: It will to some degree

In order to flex, it's going to have to flex the whole plate as opposed to just at the hole. Not a perfect answer, but it will spread the strain a little. However, I switched back to my Crumpler strap that attaches to the proper points... I may be willing to risk a K-5, but the D800 is a lot more expensive a damage proposition. As a bonus, it's a little less of a pain to attach to the tripod since I don't have to remove the strap first now.

But, based on his description it sounds like the entire bottom plate has been dislodged a few mm, not just the tripod socket. It sounds to me like the entire bottom plate is just not fused/bolted to the body as well as it could be or should be.
