Tripod for Nikon 400mm f2.8
Apr 12, 2013

I just bought a new Nikon 400mm lens and had a question regarding tripods.

I'm looking to purchase a tripod that I can travel with and pack into the woods.  Given the size of this monster lens, is it important to stick with a 3 section tripod?  A 4 section would be better for travel, but stability is critical with this lens.

I know I need a gimbal head as well.  Anyone with this lens have a recommendation?  Everything I've been reading points toward the Wimberley.

I'm finding that I should've calculated about $2000 more in accessories when I purchased this lens.
