Really, what can you say about a arca-swiss camera plate? I have many, some from Kirk like this one, some from RSS, and some from Hejnar. They all are within spec and work. The Kirk plate is very well finished, excellent etchings, and it pretty much is screams quality. I like it because I like the way it fits as compared to the same camera plate from other makers. I like the lip it has which keeps it form spinning. Good stuff. You can order it direct from Kirk, but Adorama includes their slow but free shipping. If you have the time, its a good deal.
