Re: 5Ds- 5DsR owners. I have a few questions.

As mentioned, I have been using that e-bay L bracket for 10 months and I can assure you that there is NO twisting whatsoever with it.  Of course, the OP can decide what he wants to spend.

As someone else said, just buy the best one time and forget about it.

The RRS plate is contoured to the body, so it has anti-twist properties. It cannot twist.

This is the whole point of an L-bracket. To be able to mount the camera in any orientation with any lens and not have the camera move one single millimeter.

I would NOT use that bracket from ebay as it has rubber on the bottom and it doesn't have any anti-twist properties. This defeats the purpose of an L-bracket.

Also, the rubber can potentially cause movement during long exposures. You should ONLY use metal on metal, not rubbery/soft material on metal.

I'm sure movement is not likely, but still technically possible.

Just my opinion.
