Hi. I've looked around this forum quite a bit and I see a few instances where someone has sold a Manfrotto to buy a Feisol tripod. I only have light gear right now (D200 and 180200 VR, 105 micro, etc) but one day I would like a 70-200, or a longer zoom.

I have been looking at a combination of the Manfrotto 055MF, a Markins M10 (or Emile, but I'm inclined towards a ballhead that I won't have to replace later), and an Arca-Swiss compatible plate. Is there a reason to consider a Feisol tournament class instead?

The Gitzo just isn't in the budget for me; even this kit will have to be purchased in stages over the next year.

My uses would be general outdoor and inside work (studio pictures of the kids, etc), landscapes etc. No hiking for 10 hours to get to a location! My photography is strictly for pleasure, not commercial.

Many thanks for your help.

Brett
