Greetings all Nikonians,
Last time I posted in this forum, I got some really good advice which inspired me to order a 3541XLS, Q20 among other things. Needless to say, I am very happy with this rock steady companion.
In two months I'm leaving for Australia and the 3541XLS is unfortunately neither compact nor light. I will travel with a D300 + 18-200.
Markins Q3 would be my choice for ball head.

Since the GT1542T seems (to my eye) a bit thin and unstable, I have to questions.

1. What would the sturdier alternative be (tripod only), if money was no object.
2. What would the second best (cheaper) alternative be.

I have searched around but must confess I am a bit confused.

Best regards
Mathias
