Anyone know if Kirk plates and L brackets will work with the RRS BH55 lever release plate? I have a friend that is getting rid of one and I could get it for a steal. But before I commit, I want to make sure I'm not going to have to buy all new plates just to be able to use it.

I have a Kirk L plate for D7000. It fits my RRS BH40 with lever release just fine. I'd say the BH55 LR would be the same. Hope that helps Joe.

RRS and Kirk are freely interchangable, as are some others (Feisol, for example).

Read the RRS FAQ for what RRS thinks is compatible. 6th item on the list. They specifically address Kirk, " Kirk (manufactured within the last year) will be compatible with our lever-release clamps." They do have a trade-in discount, read the FAQ for details.

If the discount is large enough you can always replace the clamp on the ballhead.
