Well, it has been a long time since Neil carefully laid out the particulars on the Gitzo line for me, especially in the heavy (and heavy duty) aluminum series four.

So after all of this, I have a G1410 on the way, and hopefully the minor stability problems I have had will be put to rest for good. I also have a buddy ready to grab up the Bogen 3021, so it made the decision easier.

It was also less than half the price of a 3 series CF, and that doesn't hurt either.

To update, Neil, I have followed just about all of your advice:

D200 for graduation gift
Stuck with the 300 2.8
Lots of practice with LLT
AND NOW GITZO 1410!
