I see a few adapters with a tripod foot but the only descriptions I can get is that they can have an A/S plate screwed to it.

An adapter with an integral A/S foot and even a rotating collar seems a great idea for the RF and other mirrorless bodies.

I like the idea of taking the torsional forces off the mount when heavier lenses are mounted. I use the 17TS-E and the 11-24 and the latter is especially heavy when mounted on the R5 with an adapter.

Does anyone know of a decent quality adapter like this?

While a good idea, a couple of months back I was looking at adapters, and the 3rd party ones with a mount-hole all seem to have checkered reviews with some people complaining about the fit or communication.  I decide to stick with Canon and got one with the ring control so all my lenses would work the same. I got lucky and got one quickly via Amazon even though it showed "back-ordered."
