Gitzo Tripod purchase suggestion
Apr 16, 2010

I own a Manfrotto 190XPROB and because of the messy setup procedure, looking to invest in a Gitzo (uff, uff). I am somewhat torn between GT3541 and GT2541. Weight and closed ht. are key points for me. Probably nobody wants to buy a $700 triopd more than once and thus asking...

Can a GT2541 be used with a 400mm focal length? Gitzo site says it can max. be used with 300mm but I would prefer some practical reviews. GT3541 on the other hand is supposed to hold 400mm but it is also a pound heavier.
(I do not own a 400mm now but I may rent, or may own in future, I am optimistic)
