Hi all I know Nikonians and its fine members are big supporters of Gitzo and Markins ( ive made up my mind on a Markins Q20 with a Kirk L-plate). Thanks to all for helping me in that decision. Beyond that im still not sure on the tripod end of the deal I currently have an older Manfrotto 055 Aluminum pod. After perusing this site and many other forums it appears the big 3 are the Gitzo, RRS and Fiesol ... I think ??

Id really love to hear comments both pro and con especially on the latter 2. obviously there is alot of Gitzo lovers here. I believe price wise they are all relatively similar.

I commend JRP and his crew for the fine job they have done with the ball head info/comparisons. Surely someone has some good comparisons on tripods. Perhaps Niel could throw in some of his wisdom !! ????

Perhaps there maybe isnt really all that much difference ???
