The Really Right Stuff L plates I've had (A900, A99 and A77) have all been sublime. For e mount I've had a small rig bracket and while not quite as perfectly formed as the RRS ones, was good value at a quarter of the price.

If you're a peak design capture clip user, I noticed three-legged things now do L plates with the Peak design clip plate integrated into the bottom of the plate which is neat if you use them.

The RRS L-brackets are hard to get.

In this video the modification of an ishoot-L-bracket is shown. It works - a nice little DIY project. The iShoot bracket is a Chinese copy of the original - which is Arca-Swiss (probably in the RRS price range).

Look for

iShoot Universal Adjustable L-Shaped Vertical Shoot Quick Release Plate Compatible with Canon Nikon Pentax Olympus Sigma Fuji Fujifilm SLR/SLT Camera w/or w/o Battery Grip & ARCA-Swiss Fit Ball Head

on Amazon to first identify the right bracket.
