I have just bought a 055CXPRO3 in UK for £220 new. The size of head you need would depend on the camera/lens combo weight you intend to put on it. Don't forget to include the weight of a flash & battery grip, just in case. It's always better to err on the side of being too good, Try your camera & heaviest lens on the ballhead, Angle it down just a little. Focus on a small spot about 8-10ft away, & take a shot. Wait for 15-20mins without touching the tripod/camera. Carefully, take another shot & compare the 2 to see if there has been any movement. The 498RC2 is a pretty good head, but of course there may be better. I had a post from a guy who sent a test of ballheads done in a photographic shop in Germany. The Siriu brand got v/good marks.
