Good choices. And thank you for the information and for participating.

I had a cheap $50 tripod that was not very good. So I followed the advice to buy high end once, I bought a Gitzo Explorer:

This page has a really good review:

I bought a Acratech GV2 Ballhead / Gimbal Head to go with it:

The tripod needed a counterweight when my E-5 + heavy lens was mounted with the head offset (for macro). The OM-D+ 50mm f2 or any m4/3 lens works just fine.

I can recommend both the head and the tripod.

Benro makes two versions of the gitzo tripod in aluminum for $141 or $154.

Benro build quality looks good.

I am looking for a smaller carry all the time tripod. Does anyone have experience with the Sirui T-025?
