Re: Don't really need a ball head for this combo...

You would get more stability with a Manfrotto video head if you really need that much support. The lens has a tripod ring, so if you need to rotate the camera (why would you?) you can do it with the ring instead of having the ball head flop all around. Just my opinion. I usually shoot my D800 and 70-200 VRII handheld, which gives you even more flexibility for sports, candids, outdoor portraits, etc.

Thanks for the advice.. I'm not a fan of the video heads, which is why I opted for the massive ball-head with an overkill load capacity of 46lbs. I just had shoulder surgery, so I won't be able to handhold for a couple weeks still, which is the reason for the new tripod and monopod..
