I'm on the lookout for a new tripod with about 12-15lb capacity for that lens just for extra stability.

Take a look at this one

http://www.ebay dot com/itm/NEW-BENRO-A0690TBH00-Aluminum-Travel-Angel-Tripod-Kit- 110832572644?pt=US_Tripods&hash=item19ce22d8e4#ht_3514wt_1139

this is the one I use and it is great. I too had the Slik Pro Mini before and it was not near as stout as this tripod. Case head and Tripod weigh 3.36 lbs. and is 16.5" long.

.

Yes thanks, the Benro Travel Angel is on the shortlist, as is a Giotto Vitruvian, and there's also a Vanguard one (cant remember which)

If the budget allows for a CF tripod then, the Benro (2types), Giotto Vitruvian or(other one?), Vanguard (something?), Fiesol (CT3?4?) and also a 3legged thing "Brian"or"Eric".

...actually that's not a very short shortlist is it.

With a $1K+ worth of heavy lens and $1K+ worth of camera, you definitely dont want a flimsy support.
