Call me cheap, but I use the NEX-7 with the Nikon 300mm f/2.8 with no ball head, but just a manfrotto quick release plate attached to a Vivitar monopod. I'm 6'2" and it extends just high enough when camera is in portrait orientation, with a few inches to spare in landscape mode. Total cost=$50. Can't figure out why I may need a ball head in my case. Total weight of camera and lens is 6 pounds, it holds it well.

You mean the Manfrotto head that swings from landscape to portrait, I'm guessing? And you can just kind of angle the monopod to substitute for what would otherwise be done with a ballhead? Hmmm ....
