Another vote for the Gitzo GT2531

I've had the Manfrotto 055 series both in aluminum and CF and had issues with each ........over time the leg tubes felt gritty and the leg lock levers were a joke, not to mention their ball heads that drooped even using the 70-200/2.8IS.

I bit the bullet and bought the Gitzo with non-rotational CF legs and twist leg locks.....smoooooth ....and very stable for under $500. The Markins Q20LR ball head only adds to the stability and fluid operation....
