I am interested in the MAGICA 3-4 tripod system. I think I may also need the L-Bracket Nikon D700 with MB-D10 (BL-D700G). Would these two items be all that is required for a complete tripod system? Has anyone used this setup and what is your experience?

I currently use a D700, MB-D10, SB-900, 17-35mm, 50mm, and 105mm. Future purchases may include a 70-200mm.

Is the Gitzo GT3541L tall enough since I am 6'5"?

Will this tripod system allow tiled panoramas?

What is the easiest way to minimize shutter release movement?

I would like to sell my existing tripod before purchasing this system, but I can't determine market price. Does anyone know what a PROMASTER 4700 is worth with no scratches or signs of wear? I purchased it new from a camera shop in the 1980s. It is solid and well built, but is not in the same league as a Gitzo. I have been unable to find it on search engines.
