    So, RRS is taking pre-orders for the D700 L-Bracket and say that the D300's will not fit. Kind of a bummer and since they use the same MB-D10, kind not sure why it won't fit unless Nikon really changed the compartment door side of the camera.

    Anyone that get the D700 and hase the D300 L's (and if you have the MB-D10 L Bracket) report back here and let us know how thing work out.

    Must have something to do with the questionable sliding card door (as opposed to the lever activated door on the others).

    Oh yeah - the OTHER side!
     
  5. Just FYI, Kirk now says their d300 L bracket with the battery pack fits the D700 with the battery pack so they will not be building a new one for the D700 - and they have them in stock. RRS says they aren't taking pre-orders for the unit with battery pack yet, but hope to soon.

    look at the bottom...

    (!!!)

    for whatever reason, Nikon has changed the profile on the bottom of the camera- it has a pointed spot on the D700 where a smooth radius is on the D300.

    -- I intend to make my D300 brackets fit by milling them out- will let you know how that works.
