Try Calumet but I doubt you'll get it any cheaper than Manfrotto direct.

You can buy the RC2 plate (the grey bit) cheaply from China on Ebay. I purchased a couple for permanent attachment to telephotos. Allow 3 weeks for delivery

Wow at the price the Chinese ebay traders are selling it for you can buy one for each camera, and buy a couple of spares.

Doesn't everyone. And the postage is free.

But I think the OP needs more than that. It's the spotting scope attachment that seems to up the price.
