Sliding plate for 502HD & 701HDV

Hi all,

Can anybody confirm that the Manfrotto 701HDV and 502HD heads will accept the same sliding plates?

I'm ready to pull the trigger on a new tripod and monopod combo for DSLR shooting. I'lm planning on purchasing a few extra plates as well so I have one for each camera or telelphoto lens, and it wasn't until I went looking for the correct sliding plate that it even occured to me that these heads might accept different ones. After no definitive answers could be found on the B & H product pages, I did a quick google and came up stumps.

So is anybody able to confirm whether or not they will work with interchangeable plates?

Manfrotto's website shows they are different sizes.

The 502HD uses the 504PLong plate: 10.7mm (H) x 50mm (W) x 140mm (L)
The 701HDV uses the 501PL plate: 11mm (H) x 38mm (W) x 86mm (L)
