Hi all.

While I haven't had a chance to field test my new Gitzo GT5562GTS tripod, I have done a tap test with my 600 f/4 mounted. The amount of vibration is practically none and settles down immediately. This compares to my 3541XLS which takes about 4 seconds to settle.

I measured the various leg diameters which are:

41.5
37
32.2
28
24
21

In case anyone is interested.

JIM
