I am considering a Gitzo GT3541xls with a RRS BH 55 or Markins Q10. I am shooting a D7000 with currently nothing longer than a 55-200 (cheapo long lens). I will at some point up grade my long lens but don't foresee buying anything too heavy. Is this tripod and ball head combo over-kill for my kit? I'm a tall guy 6'3 and will be bringing it on some hikes. I would like to do this once but maybe a GT 25 and BH 40 is all I will ever need. Also of the two ball heads, should I go with the Markins or RRS? Thanks.
