Anyone have experience with the Manfrotto 057 carbon series tripods?

There are a lot of positive comments about the Manfrotto 055 series aluminum tripods in this forum, but little mention of the Manfrotto carbon tripods. On paper the MT057C4 seems to offer Gitzo Series 5 specifications at a Series 3 price. Manfrotto and Gitzo are both owed by the same patent company so is there that much of a quality difference between the two lines at the top end of the Manfrotto line?

What am I missing here? Seems too good to be true.

Regards,
Fred
