    i will use it on a B2, an adapted 420, and probably a D4 all with the Classic screw !

    i've just discover an other one... from arca : ref. 802305
    to make shure that it will fit perfectly my arca clamps, i will probably go with it !

    Note that for the DF's V-Grip Air we recommend the Phase One/ Mamiya L-bracket, as it fits perfectly between the grip and the body. I use it with an Arca-Swiss ballhead without any issues

    Which ball head are you using? There is compatibility issue between RRS lever clamps and the PhaseOne L-bracket.

    I'm using a RRS L-bracket for the Nikon D300/D700 vertical grip with a RRS lever clamp.

    I use the RRS L-bracket on the DF. I don't own a V-Grip Air. The RRS bracket is less expensive than the others and very well made. It fits perfectly.

    Never seen this one. Have a link by chance

    RRS made the L-bracket for Phase One.

    The RRS bracket for the DF body works great, absent the nice etched Phase One lettering. Leather wrist strap fits well using this bracket (same through RRS).

    ok YAIR, but then how do you shoot horizontal with the grip on ?
    and there is something i don't understand... looking at the picture, it looks different to the phase/mam L grip !?

    The V-Grip has 1/8" thread socket on the side to which you can attach a small Arc-type plate which comes with the L-Bracket
