Hi Mike,

I would go with a Series 3 for a 400mm lens. I use a GT3541LS with a 500/4. Some of the Series 3's are very compact. We just had a recent discussion yesterday about this.

I think it is well worth the slight increase in weight and bulk over a Series 2. You can mitigate that with a Markins hub, making a Magica (or just buy a Magica kit from the ProShop!).

Once you decide on a Series, then it is easier (but not always easy!) to select a model from that Series.
