I don't have any access to these tripods to check them out, so I am going to see if the collective experience and wisdom of this group can tip the scales for me.

I am down to Manfrotto 3444 versus Gitzo 1228.

This is for hiking/travel, FM3A, and my biggest lens is only 105mm.
I plan on using the Acratech ball head with RRS plate.

The cost difference here is really not that big of an issue.

(I was smitten by the purity of the G1325, but have dismissed this as not portable enough.)
