There are several tests & reviews of the 055 series on you tube. I have just bought a 055CXPRO3 but not used the centre column as you describe yet. As for the stability, I find the head equaly important as lens droop can be a problem with long zooms like your 100-400. I was talked into a 3 way head by the guy in the shop where I bought the tripod from, & have to say that although it is a bit more bulky than a ballhead, it is as solid as a rock, even when left for a long time with my Sigma 120-400 attatched,it did not move 1mm. It's the first good tripod I have ever had, & so far I am glad I went for a good, but more expensive one.
