I find that a tripod without a center post where the head is directly over the leg platform is much better then any tripod with a post. I use the carbon fiber Gitzo G1325 legs with the Wimberly gimbal head. That's the best I have. My other tripods will give me a hard time focusing a 200mm or 300mm lens with magnified liveview. My Wimberly/Gitzo setup is good at 1000mm.
