A7r on Sirui T-1205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod
10 months ago

I just got this tripod for travel abroad with the A7r:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/822142-REG/Sirui_BSRT1205_T_1205X_5_Section_Carbon_Fiber.html

I wanted something compact and light, but more stable than my little MeFoto. This Sirui is indeed more stable, and I love how well built it is, how nice and velvety it is to operate, and how well thought through its design is, with lot of nice touches.

I don't think it is as stable as my Gitzo GT1540T, but it is close. The Gitzo is not nearly so compact, and it is heavier. It's legs are thinner, but I guess more rigid?

I"m wondering if others here have experience with Sirui tripods. If so, I'd love to hear about it. I'm thinking I might want to get a beefier tripod than my current Gitzo, something even more stable, especially for use with my 70-400G2 on A7r.  And I like this Sirui so much that I'm thinking I may want another...
