Markins Q10 ballhead choice
11 months ago

I'm about to order a Markins Q10 to use with a Gitzo GT2541 which I recently bought. Reviews I have read are all good apart from one point which seems to keep coming up ie. the panning lock doesn't lock solid and still allows for some movement.

These comments seem to relate to the M10 which I believe was the forerunner to the Q10. Has anyone experience of the Q10? I will use it with a D700 & D300s and lenses up to 70-200f2.8 but occasionally with a 300f2.8 which I believe it will hold ok.

The alternatives are Kirk BH-3 or Acratech GV2. I can't actually see or handle any of these heads so any recent user experience would be helpful.

Thanks.
