    I can't for the life of me find one and I have been looking for years now. I need one, please if anyone has one to sell let me know. Many thanks.

    Good luck! I grabbed mine from an online friend who was selling his whole setup. I couldn't live without it!!

    They're as scarce as hen's teeth or chicken lips or whatever else is impossible to find. I recently did a workshop where two other Mamiya 7 users had them and I discovered that it really is a must have.

    Thanks for that ROL. It's good to know that there are options. I do prefer the Kirk L-Bracket as it doesn't have to move up and down and won't get in the way of the shutter curtain on the Mamiya 7ii. My ball head does swivel to the side, it's an Arca-Swiss so it's not a cheapo one either. I still find the bracket a more convenient and stable option.

    Good God, I finally found one on Adorama. Used for $70 + $50 shipping to Switzerland. Bargain!
