I feel like I need to wait for this. I love my Cinch, but I also love my L bracket. I had planned on ordering the links, but now I'm thinking I should wait and see what is to come since I've gotten used to storing the camera in the bag with the strap attached.
I can see how that might stop someone from upgrading from a Cinch v1 to a v2--but lets assume 1st-time customers here, who use L-brackets. They can still remove the plate and use the v2 as a v1--and still have a spare arca-plate to stick on some other device. Pretty much win/win for $60 shipped.
