Tripod for E420
I guess this is why so many opinions on the internet need to be qualified with the phrase "your mileage may vary", since I have had a radically different experience and continue to count this tripod among my most used and favorite pieces of equipment.
Manfrotto 785B and Manfrotto/bogen 785SHB are two completely difference tripod. You are not comparing apple to apple.
