tripod outfit, what do you think?

Hello everyone, just decided on a tripod/head outfit, and would like some feedback.

----I've settled on a Benro c-257 m8 (three section, 26lb rating, and updated legs and twist locking system (as nearly a copy of a gitzo as you can find, without of course being a gitzo.)

----Markins m10 ballhead--without clamp, ordering a Really Right Stuff quickclamp and plates.

So what do you think can I expect great images up to a 500mm lense with this setup? My lense is a 7.2, not anywhere near the size of an f4. I plan on using it for digiscoping as well, so we'll see how it is.

Any feedback on these items would be appreciated. I'm pretty new to all this, less than a year, and this being my first (and hopefully only for a long time) tripod purchase. Thanks in advance.

Nikon D50, 16-85vr, 70-300G, 50 2.8 E, sigma 500 7.2 APO
