I received this bracket new from Really Right Stuff about one month ago. I've mounted it to the G9 twice just to see if I liked the way it filled my hand. It's never been clamped to a tripod, so it's exactly in like new condition. With shipping I paid $99 and waited 3 weeks for it to arrive. You can have this bracket within 2-3 working days for $85 shipped...to any of 48 states. Others inquire about postage. Paypal only, please.
