Hi guys!!!

I really need your help here.

I just obtained a brand new Sigma 300-800 (What a lense!!!! ) and I need to ask you the experts two questions

1. Which head do you suggest? The Bogen 3421, the Wimberley Head II, or the Wimberley Sidekick.

I have already searched the archives, and I have seen many replies in similar questions, but I really need some for my own case

Also I have read the following article :
https://www.nikonians.org/html/resources/non-nikon_articles/manfrotto_393/393_1.html

So, what would you prefer, assuming money is not a problem, and that you have to mount a Sigmonster? Also the other on top of this head will be my Nikkor 200-400. (one lens at a time of course, he, he, he )

2. I plan to put the whole setup on top of Velbon NeoCarmagne 640 which supposed to be ok till about 5 kgs (about 11 lbs). Now I know that the setup of the Sigmonster+F6+TC, will exceed that mass (i.e. about 7kgs), but do you suggest me to invest in a heavier tripod?? If yes, then I would plan to go to Velbon NeoCarmagne 730 capable for 7 kgs or 15,5 lbs.

Any kind of reply, would be highly appreciable!!!

Thanks in advance guys!!!
