Re: opinion on this plate?

I use that exact plate on my D7000.  Yes, it will block your battery door - I can't fully open the battery door on the D7000 with the L-plate in place and that's a much bigger camera.

The other thing to consider is that Sunway dovetails are actually a little bit narrower than RRS', so if you use a lever-lock ballhead, I don't think you'll be able to get a good clamp.  If you have a screw-knob head, it should work fine.

Other than that, the plate works fine.  As long as you're not looking for something you want to keep on the camera 100% of the time, and you have a screw-knob ballhead, it'll work for you.  Otherwise, you'll need to get something more specific to your camera.
