I have to disclaim at the get-go that I don't really frequent this particular section of Nikonians, but do check in from time to time. What I'm wondering is why, when I do, does nobody ever seem to mention Amvona (Dynatran)? There are a lot of folks that come here asking what their firat tripod should be, and all I ever see are the "salon brands" recommended. I nearly went down that road until I discovered Amvona, and that they sell Carbon Fiber tripods with pistol grip ballheads at fractions of what the recommended brands go for. I bought one, and can tell now that I will never look anywhere else! I have also talked to others who have owned the salon brands and now use Amvona products who will never look back. So my question again is: What's wrong with Amvona? And if I may be so bold, why are so many first-time purchasers told to go spend hundreds of, or even 1000+, dollars for a tripod and head just because it says "Gitzo" on the side, when they can have such an outstanding product for less than $200 from the Big Auction Site? I mean no disrespect to anyone, and apologize if I am being over-the-top, but the advice I see on this board concerns me for my fellow Nikonians. I really think they're being denied a great opportunity to save a lot of money for an at least equivalent product.

Let the tomatoes fly!
