Hi Kevin,

Yea, you probably did but you asked after you ordered

The 190 series is a bit light for a 70-200, especially with a TC. The 055 series is the minimum I would recommend. The idea is to match leg diameter to the focal length.

Gitzo issues some guidance on this in their downloadable catalog. I find their numbers right on target. Very conservatively a TC would put you into a Series 3. Many do that, others do not. Depends on which side you want to err on, and the costs go up a bit for 32mm Series 3 size legs.
