The 7D as I'm using it now with the 70-200's mount screwed into my tripod seems to move much more than I want.

So you aren't using a head atop of the tripod? That and your tripod seem to be the issues. My Gitzo GT2531 and Markins ball head with an ArcaSwiss style release clamp/plate system are rock solid but will cost you around $850.

Whenever possible get a tall tripod without factoring in a center column to get the proper height. The column is your weakest link even when extended a couple of inches.........
