I recently bought the RRS L-Plate for my Canon 60D to use with my Markins Hand Strap. I can't seem to decide whether or not to keep the Grip or L-Plate on to use with my hand strap. The L-plate combo is lighter than the grip, while the grip allows more comfortable portrait shooting at the expense of weight, but you have to take your hand out of the hand strap to shoot at that orientation.
What are your thoughts and what do you find the most useful/convenient/comfortable? I know it's based on personal preference but kinda just wanted to find out what works for other people and why .
