I'm in the process of disposing of my Manfrotto 468RC4 ballhead and replacing it with the Markins Q20 system. I'm going to replace the feet on both my 300 f4 and the 70-200 zoom. In the store for the 70-200 they show the two model numbers and indicate that one of them is new (Markins) and improved (and more money) but when I read the description there isn't any obvious benefit from the newer design when compared to the Kirk. Has anyone used both and can tell me if there is any advantage to the newer Markins? TIA



Cold weather photography makes a VR lens your best friend. Think violent shivering. :-)
