Hi,
I've just recently purchased a D7000 and a few lenses the longest being the 70-200 F/2.8. I purchased these online and earned some rewards points to my next purchase, so I was thinking of upgrading my tripod (I have a Manfrotto 7322YB for my Sony NEX-5). The top of the line tripod this place sells is the Velbon GEO640.

The list price is around $370 and I can get it for under $200. I was also going to purchase a nice ball head for it - Markin, RRS, Arca etc.
I predominantly want to shoot landscapes, star trails etc, but will experiment with other forms.

In your opinions would this be worth getting?

Thanks for your help.

PS. If I had more money I'd probably look at Gitzo, but I don't atm.
