Consider Benro C-2680
In reply to foAM, Jul 24, 2012

You might consider the Benro C-2680. I bought the tripod and head for $351 shipped, then sold the head for $135. The legs ended up costing $216. Also, the tripod come with a decent bag and a set of spike feet for outdoors. It costs about $150 for the Gitzo equivalents.

The Benro legs are not as refined as my Gitzo GT3541XLS, but they are quality legs that are about the same size as the Gitzo you want. And they would be delivered in less than a week, straight from China.

I put a Markins Q3t head on the Benro. It is a nice combo.

Just food for thought. I recommend the Gitzo, but one should weigh the cost vs benefit for each piece of equipment.
