    The present.
    I've used RRS for a long time. Need a plate now and stock is out at RRS for the EM-5. Looking for alternatives, came to this:

    JTec L-bracket for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Camera

    Not a fly-by-night outfit; some of their l-plates are sold by B&H. Are there any other options?

    I tend to put L-Plates on and keep them there unless I need something like a grip (which implies a lot of hand-held action anyway.

    woof!

    Do you have experience with these plates and an EM-5?

    yes... i use it wwith several cameras including my Leica and Micro 43.. Epl1 and OMD. They have schematics online with very detailed measurements. My Omd uses the DPL-02 for use without grip. The rest of my cameras use the more generic DPL-01 but i beleave there are several models that will work... its personal preference. The DPL02 has a sliding peice which allows the L bracket "hug" the side of the camera better. I shaved off a tiny bit of material to allow use with the grip portion of the HLD6... to make room form the tripod tightening screw.

    no problem

    I purchased them via the ebay seller oeccamera... along with a gimble head and nodal slider. They seem to be a retailer for sunway.
