Re: Sirui T-005 or Benro MeFoto tripod? Or Manfrotto 055XPROB?

The T-005 and the 055XPROB are not nearly in the same class! You never can compare them...

The Sirui is a light travel tripod, not exceptional sturdy, ideal for travelling (I own one )... It's about 1.2 KG incl. ballhead. I have used it a lot with a77 on Iceland and I like it very much!

The 055XPROB is a sturdy but heavy tripod, weight w/o head over 2.5 KG.... I would not want it for travels or hiking, no problem for studio and home work or macro in the home garden...

The T-005 comes with a great head and there is no reason to use another with this tripod...

I can highly recommend the T-005 for city travels!
