You make a good point. I've amassed equipment over about 5 years making occasional upgrades. I've spent most of my budget on glass and I'd ignored my camera support for a long time. Now, money is tighter and if I was able to, I'd be spending my budget on a Gitzo/Arca combo without much hesitation.
However, I'll have to make do with what I have at the moment and will look to re-sell and upgrade to something that's worthy of the rest of my gear.
