I have read some fantastic comments on here about the Markins ballhead I thought i had narrowed my choices down to the Q20 or Q 10 Then along came some trusted info on the RRS BH 55 & BH 40 I know this site is a big supporter of Markins, however the RRS product sure seems intriguing !! My plan is to incorporate my choice with an older Manfrotto 055 aluminum tripod until I can save up for a Gitzo series 3 down the road. My interests are varied from landscape to macro to sports- nature, animals etc about the only thing im not into is portraits - . So ........ not trying to be critical of the Nikonians support of Markins but what are the thoughts on the RRS ball heads ?? Pros and cons either way for both mfg's. My largest lens to date is a 70-300 but plan on a 70-200 2.8 which i believe is considerably heavier. I dont want to skimp - who knows whats in my future purchases!!
