You need to read what the Markins site says in the specs about the ball head. All the answers are there: http://www.markins.com …ducts/ballheads​/q10l.html (external link)

Lever release is just the style of clamp. But it is an Arca style clamp. Some are screw clamp some are lever release clamps.

This is what the spec page says:

Adjustable Clamping Distance (Patented): The clamping distance is user-adjustable by turning the adjustment screw for plates larger than Markins standard such as Kirk or RRS. Note: We recommend the lever style release only if one has plates from single maker. Though this lever release quickshoe is adaptable to accommodate different brands of plates, it won't be practical to do so in the field with mixed brands of plates. We strongly recommend to use a single brand of plates with this lever release quickshoe. With mixed brands of plates, the traditional screw-knob style quickshoe will be more flexible.

As long as your L bracket and other plates are all from RRS, you can adjust the lever Markins release to one of them and they all then will fit perfectly. If you get a screw release, you can use plates from different manufacturers.

The default Markins size will fit RRS brackets. It's a little tight, but it will work. You can also loosen it a bit if you want.
