ARCA L-bracket for LA-EA2?

I just got a LA-EA2 adapter and need something to mount it on my tripods, all with ARCA clamps. As I have ARCA plates on other equipment I am thinking of a bracket or L-bracket. I have found a L from RRS at $80 plus PP at $34 which makes it very expensive.

Is there anybody out there who know any other brand of L-brackets for the LA-EA2?

Kirk has a short universal L-bracket but it costs more (double) than the RRS one. Come to think of it I have a Kirk universal sitting around here somewhere that I used on my *istD that's unemployed. You'd probably want to cut it down a bit though.

Thanks for your reply. I will stick to an ordinary lensplate as it seems like an L-bracket on the LA-EA2 will interfere with the L-bracket on the camera.

Now I have the answer to my problem!

I have just bought an used RRS LA-EA2 L-bracket. I got it very cheap so it was worth to gamle that it might interfere with the camera L-bracket.

But it doesn´t! As the "L" or the part that is used for portrait mode of the Sunwayfoto L-bracket is very thin I can have the camera bracket still on the camera while using the LA-EA2 adapter with its own L-bracket. The tripod clamp huggs the adapters portrait mode ARCA bracket without problems. Perfect!
