I have a very nice Manfrotto tripod I've had for about 8 years, but I'm starting to use it more for landscape photography and it is getting heavy to lug.

I was looking at some carbon fiber models when a Benro rep demonstrated the MeFoto A1350 tripod. You can see it here: http://tinyurl.com/awkzlow

Pretty reasonably priced and looked pretty good. Only thing I didn't like was that is a screw to unlock/lock the legs, but the guy showed me that it is only a half-turn, and when you are first extending or at the end of the collapse, you can grab and twist them all at once.

Anything I should know/consider before I make this purchase?
