R5 v. R w/BG L-brackets

FYI, while waiting for my R5 delivery today, I tried out my L-bracket from my R with battery grip on the R5 battery grips (both standard and wifi) and the bottom piece fit almost perfectly.  So, a bottom bracket for the R battery grip will fit the R5 battery grips.

But, the battery compartment cover of the R5 grips is taller than that of the R, so, at least in my case, the L side part from the R would not work on the R5 grips.

So, if you don't want to wait for a dedicated R5 bracket, the bottom pieces from R brackets fits just fine.
