Hi all,

I can't find any hits after some searches, so I'll put this out there.

Does any one have any opinions on the Wimberley AP 554 on a 500 VR lens? Is the greater height cause more vibration compared to the AP 553?

While I want to retain the "handle" feature, I don't want to loose too much rigidity.

I will be using it on a full Wimberley head and Gitzo 5540LS with a D2x or D700 with grip.
