OK guys I got some info from Luma.

"The MkII will ship with our new carbon fiber injection molded hardware, including a Luma ARCA plate that will be replacing the PodMount. Nobody has ever made a quality injection molded plate before and we are using a really special/new material. As you can imagine, anything new requires a lot of testing/tweaking and development, which is exactly what we've been doing.

This has put us in a bit of a pickle - with injection mold tools, it takes a couple of weeks to do a development rev and make changes, and for all we know, the set of tweaks will yield a part that works perfectly and we will be ready to ship. By the same token, the minimum order we need to make for our CNC machined aluminum components is around 750 units.

So, we are in a position where the MkII has always been just a couple of weeks from shipping, which precludes us from wanting to restock hundreds of MkI units which are on the cusp of being outdated. This is why we've been off-the-market for the last couple of months.

We haven't been wasting much time though. MkII shoulder pads and webbing are in production and ready to go. As soon as we sign off on the injection tools, we are literally hours away from shipping them.

So basically, we're on the cusp here. It's a super annoying position to be in, but the plan is to make a big splash with the MkII - it's a serious evolution of the Cinch with a lot of cool features and a modular construction that makes it the most adaptable product on the market (and at a significantly lower cost than the MkI). The wait will have been worth it."

Some more:

"The QR links are simply an optional accessory. They thread right onto the 3/8" webbing and click onto the bottom of the new Luma ARCA plate. The PodMount has also been updated to accept them and we will be offering both triangular split keys and a D-ring lanyard adapter for using the links with body lugs/brackets.

The Links are an accessory because, surprisingly, lots of Cinch users have zero interest in a quick release system. I would even say that a majority of the feedback we've gotten is that people like the simplicity and reliability of the simple 3/8" webbing connection.

This, BTW, is why we are so driven to make future products modular. There are too many different photographers, using different gear in different environments to make one strap to rule them all. Instead, we are dramatically lowering the Cinch base price and allowing people to customize it to their needs with various accessories.
