    I re-tried the RRS BXT2 on the Fuji X-T3 and can confirm that although close, it does not fit correctly (X-T3 without battery Grip)
    There is a small metal 'pin' on the plate that does not align with a hole on the base plate of the X-T3 and also the lip of the plate does not correctly align.

    I picked up a 'temporary' solution from Amazon for £6.99 - It is well made for the price and when fitted to the X-T3 allows the battery door to open and the LCD to tilt freely.

    I see that this guy has found that his sunwayfoto L for a X-T2 fits the X-T3 OK

    Yes, I can confirm that the RRS L bracket - the one piece for the X-T2 with the Vertical Grip - does fit just X-T3 with its new Vertical Grip, and likely I won't replace; as noted, it simply doesn't accommodate the new door being opened (for those shooting with cables, etc. a problem). The RRS L bracket for the X-T2 (without the Vertical Grip) does NOT fit the X-T3 (I mean you can sort of screw it on but the small stabilizing pin on the bracket does not match up and the whole thing is skewed and plainly not what you would want long term.)

    my Peak Designs strap comes with a small arca-swiss plate that works for horizontal shooting; using it for now, but miss my RRS L!

    summary of my research:
    So, I have now preordered the X-T3 (non vertical grip, normal L) from RRS. Yikes, $200, but hard to go back.

    Kirk Photo now allows preorders at $140. [Liked Kirk L for my old Nikon gear (sold all for Fuji), but prefer RRS.]

    Please login or register to view links has smoking deals on complete lightweight cages with arca-swiss L bracket functionality (discounts of 30% for initial orders and 10% more from coupons or larger orders; see FujiRumors for possible codes, too). I bought pre-0rdered (shipping October 18) both regular grip cage and vertical grip cage for combined $130. (I wanted to try and I am thinking for once of doing some light video and this will allow me to attach a few things including mic and maybe flash easily.)

    Me too. I converted the Manfrotto 405 Pro Digital Geared Head to use Arca Swiss plates. Excellent quality.

    I used to buy a new L-bracket for each new camera as well, waiting a while until the cheap manufacturers got the measurements right and then buying one from somewhere in China. Usually worked out well. But is seems a bit silly, to buy a new L-bracket each time for a lot of money. So I invested in a 3 legged thing QR11-LC universal L bracket, and it is great. I can't recommend it enough. I use it on both my X-T2 and my X-Pro2, and if I ever decide to upgrade, I'll use it on that camera too! (you even get this nice tool for tightly screwing the L-bracket to your camera ;-)

    I'm sorry it's a crappy iPhone photo, but you can see what it is. It works on each camera, although it might be unbalanced if you have a battery grip.

    1) What's the blue gizmo that is attached on photo right?
    2) I much rather have a discreet black version than bright orange!

    It's the tool to screw it tight. You can also use a coin, or whatever you want, but the tool works perfect!
    As for 2, I suppose that's personal taste. Whenever I use this bracket I'm usually somewhere in the fields or forests outside the place I live. I don't much care for discreet in those circumstances. The orange one was available for order, the black one wasn't, the choice was easy ;)

    I have that one - not completely decided about it.

    I have their half leather case as well - it fits perfectly, looks good and is a bargain.

    Their images are confusing. Which photo does the bracket look like?

    No one but RRS seems to put center marks on the rails of their L-brackets. Which is annoying, because $200 for an L- bracket is just way overpriced. But the center marks are essential for panorama shooting, so I can't do without them.
    Btw: I read somewhere, that the door covering the connectors can be taken off on the X-T3, so an L-bracket partially obstrucing the door shouldn't be an issue. Can someone confirm this?

    The 2.5mm remote jack is now on the opposite end.

    Fujifilm confirms the Connector Cover is Detachable.
