Hello,

I have a D700 body with a few primes (24mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 200mm Micro f/4), + one zoom telephoto 80-400mm f/2.8 VR.

I'm looking to replace my budget Manfrotto tripod which came with its own cheap ball head and quick release plate. I no longer find this combination sufficient and stable enough for my purposes.

I shoot some landscape, portrait, and macro.

I'm on a tight budget and would like an opinion on the following tripod + head combo I am looking to purchase:

- Slik 700DX Pro Legs
- Oben BB-2 Ball Head
- Misc accessories such as bag, tether tools, grips, etc.

The above kit will cost me about $300+ some change which is right within my budget.

Would there be any other suggestions as to any other good value combos which would suit my equipment and lenses?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Shawn
