I recently upgraded to a D700 and my old tripod isn't sturdy enough for it. I am looking for something that is small, light and does not break the bank. I am looking at the 190CXPRO4. Do any of you use it (or something similar) with a D700? What would be the biggest lens I could use it with? I cannot imagine ever needing anything larger than a 70-200. Any help is appreciated!


Sorry, but small, light, doesn't break the bank do not co-exist with study enough. I find my Gitzo 3 series with Acra-Swiss Z Ball only marginally OK with the D700 and 70-200. Using a laser pointer hard mounted on the hot shoes. I can see movement on the lizer marker at around 20 feet when the mirror flip.
