I'm only now investing in a good tripod (GT2530) and was wondering which of these two heads I should choose. My current set-up is a D200 with MBD200 grip, and I have no heavy duty lenses. My longest lens is the 18-200, and I probably will not go beyond the 300 and that is farther down the road.

I love the dual notch of the BH40 but many good folks I've talked to (esp other Nikonians) seem to prefer the Markins line. Is there any reason other than just personal preference?

I'm not a pro and will never be, but I want a good set-up I can grow with in my newly minted retirement.

Thanks.

Mary
