      I have a Sony 70-400 lens where I added this Plate.
      It is now very easy to change from my 24-70 and the camera mounted plate to the large zoom lens.

      The camera with the 400mm does not work too well on the tripod when attached by the body of the camera.
      Before I used to leave the Plate on the zoom and handhold on the smaller (but not lighter lens)

      The only think that I have aproblem with is that when you screw the 3/8-16 into the 1/4-20 only gets out a couple rounds to screw your lens, a bit unconfortable because I prefer to have at least 3 to have a peace of mind that it will stay on place...

      Does what it's supposed to do

          Comments about Gitzo GS5370C Quick Release Plate with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 Screws:

          Not much to say about this actually.
          If you have Gitzo head, this is one of the most likely solutions for you. Yes, there are larger plates, but this one will do, unless you want to use heavy lenses on heavy cameras. I use it with a D800E with my longest lens being the 70-300VR.

          There is one trick to it I did not notice immediately, because I though the thicker screw was permanently fixed in the plate. It is not, you can unwind it and replace it with the thinner one, and that is what you for example need for Nikon cameras.

          Then you have one problem, the rubber surface on the plate has a whole to large to keep this screw in its place and it is likely to fall out if you are not careful. Suggest that you keep the two together in a small nylon bag to prevent losing it.

          Yes, you need to fasten it well, otherwise it might start turning around it"s screw axis. If this bothers you, use RRS or Kirk profiled plates but then you will be in a different league regarding costs and quality.

                    So I have a few lenses and cameras that I needed mounting plates for because I don't want to spend another grande on tripods. This is a great plate, very versatile with the 3/8th and 1/4th screw conversion. A bit pricey, but again, you kind of need to expect that if you're purchasing name brand gitzo. Overall, can't really complain much.

                        It works better than the old one I have. I decided to get a 2nd one to put on my tele lens's collar. Much easier for me to change camera/lens when using a tripod.

The products perfectly met my needs and the order processing and delivery service from B&H was excellent, even though my order was of small scale. This is my second very satisfactory experience with B&H. I was able again to see that there is no small client for B&H.

                              A second QR plate makes changing lenes much more convenient. In fact, depending on your kit you may want two or three extras.

                                  I have multiple cameras but only one tripod, got this so I didn't have to switch it from camera to camera. Now I'm set.

                                    I have a Sony 70-400 lens where I added this Plate.
                                    It is now very easy to change from my 24-70 and the camera mounted plate to the large zoom lens.

                                    The camera with the 400mm does not work too well on the tripod when attached by the body of the camera.
                                    Before I used to leave the Plate on the zoom and handhold on the smaller (but not lighter lens)

                                          This Gitzo QR plate is well designed, small and light and easy to us. Can't say how durable it is as I have just begun using it, but it looks tough.

                                              Rubber is already coming loose after 1 trip - 2 weeks in China. I cannot attach a camera to new Gitzo tripod without this plate. Does not hold camera (5D Mark II or 1DS MarkII) very well in vertical position.
                                              After 30 years I will be looking for a non Gitzo tripod in the future.

                                              Tricky to slide in and out of position as well. Almost had a body fall off the tripod after I mistakenly thought it was attached.
