The 680B is great with my D100,300,800 Nikons+grip and my zooms from 15-30 up to the 150-500. An invaluable accessory is the 'tucked-in' mini-tripod legs (Manfrotto) that permits the setup to be used as a short term free-standing tripod--when pulling something out of my bag or munching a power bar.

I mounted a Markins ballhead on top--panning, tilting and multi-row pano frames are done with ease.

For hiking or Safari pix from the inside of a LandRover this is the best way to go. Highly recommended!!

I just bought the 680B. Which Markins ballhead that you use?
