I'm fairly new here and getting pretty involved in macro work. Take a lot photos of flowers, bugs etc. Looking to get a tripod without taking out a mortgage on my home and would really appreciate some guidance.

I've read a ton of info and I "think" what I'm looking for is something like the Gitzo 3 series with a Markins Q3. However there are other items that would seem important like the focusing plate etc.

If there is such a thing, I'm looking for the middle ground between way to much and way to cheap.

Thanks in advance!
