    I should have mentioned that I have a speed grip and use it most of the time. It is indeed not fiddly to mount and gives me more control. I think I'll stick to it considering all the comments. Thanks everyone.

    My mdE is no more difficult than my speedgrip to mount. I wonder why you have an issue. I'll ask a friend who also has one if he finds it more difficult to mount.

    BrianL: you can physicaly mount the mdE just like a speed grip - the pain for me (mentally) was because you have to have the yoke in the right part of it's cycle or it won't work properly.

    I've never had any issue mounting the unit. Maybe after 20+ years I am just so used to mounting it, it just goes smoothly. I cock the camera, slide the drive on and back the camera winder bar back to match the yoke and slide it on to the final position. I do the same the speedgrip.

    The ETRS motor drive is more finicky in terms of procedural adherence to mounting instruction than either motor winder or the speed grip (which have no special procedures to follow at all).
