I have been offered two sets of used tripod/head combinations and I am about to choose one - within the next two days. But I find it very difficult to make the decision since I haven´s tried the two sets. I hope some of you Nikonians can help my out.

No. 1 offer: Velbon D-600 tripod with Manfrotto 029 head (Bogen 3047). Price appr. §100.

No. 2 offer: Manfrotto 055CB (Bogen 3021N) with heavy duty ball head 168 (Bogen 3055). Price appr. §100.

My main corncern is sturdiness of the set to avoid vibrations and I am mainly going to use the set photographing wildlife with my F100 and the Nikkor 75-300/4,5-5,6.

I´ll appreciate all the help I can get.

Kind regards
