How to justify the price difference?

I'm into a new tripod + head and am just curious, how would you justify the price difference between those two comparable sets:


  • Tripod: C2580T    12 kg =             289 euro
  • Head:  Benro B2  20kg  =  159 euro
    Total of 448 euro


  • GT2541  =                   569 euro
  • Markins Q10 (knop)     359 euro
    Total of 928 euro

I like Gitzo but the price difference is huge........

Both tripods are from Carbon, have similar load capacity etc etc.

Benro reviews are also very good..

So......Should I pay 480 euro more as hobbyist?
