Quick update guys. One of the local calumet stores had one in stock so I was able to check it out in person and I was set to buy it. While I was going to place my order from B&H I noticed the huge price increase from $275 to $399 which was shocking even adorama had the same price. After quick search of all the big online retailers Amazon was the only one that did not yet updated the pricing so I end it up ordering it from them. Seems like all the gitzo products went up in price by a big margin. If some of you ending up reading this Amazon still has 7 more in stock for $275.
