I forgot to add that I started with a Manfrotto/Bogen 3021BPro tripod w/Manfrotto head and upgraded recently to a Gitzo 3540LS with a Markins M20 ballhead. I can tell you that I was never really happy with the stability of the Manfrotto setup in that the head didn't lock down very well and the leg locks would slip at inopportune moments. The Gitzo tripod & Markins head are remarkably stable and I can assure you that a good tripod & head are well worth the investment.
