A very sturdy build with he exception of the screw mount. The tiny key that comes with it stay in place with a weak magnet, and falls off easily. When I use it to screw in the mount all the way, the entire frame is still a but loose. When I use a screw diver, it's not much better as I can still move the frame instead of keeping it flush. Otherwise it's an intelligent design for it's shape and I love the front the way it goes around the hot show and provide a second cold show on an angle on the side.
Firstly I must commend Smallrig for their superb shipping service. I live in Auckland NZ and I had the product in my hands 4 days after placing my order online. That beats anything I have ever purchased online from overseas. The design and build quality is excellent. I also purchased the NATO handle which I have fitted to the left (looking from the back) as I am left handed. I have a 5D MK IV and currently using the EF 85mm f/1.4 IS lens. I'm in my 60's and yet I find the configuration very comfortable even with prolonged use. Would I like to see any changes? Perhaps just for my needs it might be nice to be able to buy something like a thin plate to affix to the top to enable me to mount my MIOPS trigger. The current realestate at the top is taken up by the flash and the BLIND-SPOT external battery adapter. For any 5D MK IV owners out there I highly recommend the SmallRig Cage CCC2271. Please note that this review is based purely on the design, construction quality and functionality of the product and not on its value for money. As far as value for money goes I would say this cage represents excellent value for money.
