@Randy - Thanks for your feedback, it looks like I'm leaning very much towards the Slik legs for their stability and bang for the buck, and I'm willing to live with the limited features.

@liamtoh1ps - The link to the article is greatly appreciated. It all makes sense, however, I still find that the Gitzos are significantly out of my price range despite the fact the Series 2 would be perfect for my purposes. When you add the Arca Swiss, my budget's blown out of the water. However, this would make a dream combo

Your responses are much appreciated.
