Hello,

I'm shopping for a new head. Currently my biggest load on it is a D700 with battery grip, 70-200 2.8VR2 w/TC20e 111.

I realize the M10 or Q10 would be more than adequate and perhaps the better choice for that "sweet spot" as it's referred to, but I was also thinking about longer glass in the not so distant future and whether or not the 20 series would be a better choice especially considering the Price difference is only about $40.00.

Aside from that, does anyone have any opinions on the "M" vs the "Q". I beleive the Q is newer, lower profile and as such has a higher weight rating and I think a bigger lock knob, But is it any better than the battle tested M20 or M10?

FYI, I'm putting this on GT3532LS Tripod.

Thanks,

Tom
