Makes all the difference

Excellent fit and finish. Adds just enough height to the camera to make it much more comfortable and stop my pinky finger from slipping under the base. I'd rather a thumb or coin screw than need an Allen key tho, for when I want to change it for the battery grip.

Great product and a must in my book

This plate is a huge plus. I never use the neck straps that come with cameras so I don't know if the optional portrait bracket causes any issues with installing the neck strap. But the bottom plate by itself does not interfere with anything. I use a Black Rapid shoulder strap and I attach that using a quick release that RRS produces. It simply releases with a thumb screw. I always leave the RRS bottom plate on the camera as I like how it gives my hand just a little more to hang on to and it's rounded edges are nicer than the sharp edges of the bottom of the SL.

Good Product but...Less than Perfect.

Nicely made, good finishing and looks as good as part of the original camera. The problem is at Strap Lug, just can not insert strap as the gap is very small, I tried with two wrist straps, one each from Tie Her Up and Harringbone and both just impossible to insert. The plate is only good for Quick Release use, but then there are less expensive solution than RRS, for those who wants to use plate also to attach Wrist Strap will be disappointed. Do I recommend? Yes & No: No if you want to use with Wrist Strap or only as a Base Plate, but Yes perfect for those using with L-Plate on Tripod, ( a good product I could not use for the purpose I bought)

Great Product

The plate is a perfect fit on my SL and actually improves holding the camera with its rounded edges. My only criticism is the lack of a slot screw instead of the the hex bolt which requires a wrench to remove or tighten in the field.

Just Do it...buy this!!

The SL body is thin and normally easy to carry. With long lenses, especially heavy lenses the camera is unbalanced. The grip helps to return the balance but $850 is a lot to pay for a grip. This base plate will also balance the camera nicely for many lenses. Well designed and lightweight, $85 is a bargain for Leica. Buy the full L plate if you need vertical mounting, the L portion is removable and I prefer the smaller form factor of the base portion only.
