Going crazy...thought I read a thread about an AS plate that fit the EF-M adapter that allowed it to be removed easily. I see that the RRS B26 extends a bit so that the foot has to be unscrewed first for removal. Somebody had used a video/camcorder plate that fit allowing proper clearance for the EF-M lens adapter to be removed normally.

Help? What plate is that?

Scoured through my December browser history and finally found the discussion. Good thing I didn't delete the history but getting through all the browsing for the month was :(

The poster in the Canon Rumors thread was using the RRS MPR-73 rail, $55.

Probably other universal basic plates will work if the 1/4-20" hole is located far enough back to clear the camera body.

My use is for the 100L, etc.

Had an MPR-113 rail so other than being longer, the overall fit should carry over with similar uses. Did a mock-up to verify potential use.

Stopped by RRS in early Jan and the rep suggested the B6 plate. This works really well with the 4 sides opposed to using the multi purpose rail. The anti-twist lip eliminates any twisting concerns but for the light weight lenses this won't be an issue.
