Hi out there,

I am planing to buy a tripod.... after hours of investigation my two favorite options are:

Gitzo Safari (GT2540FL) with Safari Ballhead (GH2780FQR)
Gitzo Montaneer 2542L and Markins M10 Ballhead

The heaviest load will be Body and 70-200 2.8 - so not very heavy, maybe a Tele-Lens is to come somewhen....

I like the design of the Safari and the sand/water proofness....

How would you choose???? Any experience out there??

Thanx for help
