"RE: support for 400mm"

Thanks Joe, I'm glad to be here.
Yeah, I'm pretty excited about the new glass and I should have it just in time for Eagle season up here in Vancouver.
Thanks for the advice. I was leaning toward the full gimbal head but was curious how it handled in comparison to a ball head like the Markins Q20. As for the legs, I think I would rather suffer the 2 extra pounds than sacrifice any amount of stability. So it looks like a series 5 is the way to go. May I ask why you chose the 5541 over the 5532. Are 4 sections better than 3? Just courious, as the 3 section tripods are cheaper than the others.
Anyway, thanks for the great advice. It helped alot.
