Feisol ball heads (CB-50DC vs CB-50D)

Hi all,

I'm in the process of violating Thom Hogan's rules on buying tripods, but I'm broke so I'm prepared to forgive myself at this time

Does anyone have any experience with the CB-50DC or CB-50D ball heads from Feisol? Also, do you know what the differences between them are? I'm possibly blinding by excitement and unable to read clearly, but I can't see any substantial differences listed on the pages.

I'm looking at a CT-3442 tripod ( http://www.feisoluk.com/p78/CT-3442---Medium-Tournament-Class-Carbon-Fibre-Tripod/product_info.html ) and the head looks like a good spec.

I was considering getting a Markins Q3 to replace my Markins M10, but this is a good price, so I'm asking - what's the catch ?

The setup I plan to use is as follows:
Nikon D300s with one of the following lenses at a time:

  • Sigma 17-50 f/2.8

  • Nikon 70-300

  • Sigma 105mm Macro

On very rare occasions I might add an SB800 flash but that is off camera 90% of the time.

Thanks in advance,
