Hello,

I am in the market for a first time purchase of a Tripod+Ballhead.
My system is:
FM2n/T, 28/f2.8 AI-S, 50/f1.8 AI-S E, 100/f2.8 AI-S E.

I do not envision getting more lenses, till I am proficient with these, in the near future.

I am 5'5". I am interested in general photography - potraits, nature, vacation pictures, etc.

Needs are:
1. Tripod: Which one - Gitzo G1127 or G1227 or G1325 (overkill?) ? Any other recommendations? (read about ordering from Robert White for tripods)
2. Markins M1-PQi? Any other recommendations? (read all the notes from Jeff, BJ, Snake and Doug on the M1-PQi. I have also contacted Mr. Mah.)
3. RRS plates?

I would appreciate all feedback.

Thanx,
Mahesh

Thanx,
Mahesh
