I'm planning to buy my first real tripod after hours and hours of researching. Primary use will be taking portraits, then maybe some time laps, simple landscape shots, and macro. Nothing fancy. No hiking anytime in the near future.

Current setup is a D7000, grip sometimes, SB400 flash, and Nikkor 24-70. I think this setup weighs 5lbs.

I'm planning to buy this tripod setup:

- Gitzo 2531 legs - $470

- Markins Q10 head with screw release - $350

- Markins plate - $50

$890 total. What do you think? Any suggestions for a better setup?

Thanks!
