I need a tripod on which I can either mount the D100 with MB-D100 grip, or directly mount the 70-200 2.8 AF-S VR via supplied tripod collar. Can anyone please suggest me an appropriate tripod for these applications? I might also add on the custom RRS bracket for the D100 to enable quick horizontal/vertical orientation changes. I'm leaning towards a Gitzo, but any other equivalent suggestion is welcome. Also, what ball head would I need?

I'm not too sure if the 70-200's tripod collar mounts directly onto the ball head, or whether any extra adapter is required to make the connection. Is it possible to have some sort of a quick release plate so that the camera/lens could be quickly detached from the tripod? If so, what make and model would that be? I understand I would need something strong to carry this payload, but I don't desire anything more bulkier or expensive, than is absolutely necessary.

Thanks in advance for your replies,

Regards,

Yogi.
