I'm thinking of getting the Gitzo G1227 Carbon Tripod and I'm trying to decide between the RRS BH55 ball head with the lever clamp or the Markins M20 ball head. If I were to go the Markins M20 route I was thinking of getting it without the clamp and getting the RSS lever clamp instead. This makes the Markins M20 head about $25 more than the BH55 so the price difference is neglible. The only real difference I can determine from reading specs is that the BH55 will be 861g vs 639g for the Markins M20. Any thoughts? Hope this question hasn't been asked before...I almost feel like I'm starting a Canon vs Nikon or Mac vs PC thread. But since I can't just walk into a store to try them myself this is the next best thing for me

The largest lens I'm planning on getting in the near future is the 300mm f/4.
