Gitzo Traveler and Markins ball head?
Anyone have experience to let me know how the M10 behaves on the Traveler? I just ordered the 1541T and need to decide between the Markins Q3T and M10.
If I put an M10 on the 1451T would I be constantly annoyed by something not closing, rubbing, squeaking, being top-heavy, etc, etc?
The Q3T is made for that tripod but I'm trying to decide if the M10 will work on it -- that is, if I let one section of the legs out a little to help the locking collars clear the M10, will it still fold in a useful way? And in general, is there any reason the M10 won't work with the 1541T?
If not then I will likely get the M10 in case I ever need it's ability to handle longer lenses than the Q3 (in which case I would get a series-2 tripod as well).
The two largest lenses I expect I would use on the 1541T/Q3T combo would be the 180mm f/2 and 24-70 f/2.8. I've already determined that this setup can handle the 24-70, although the M10 would do it a little smoother with room to grow.
Thank you in advance.
