After trying out the Pro2 I must say that I agree with those that said it was bulky. It was a bit heavier than I expected an so got the mid-range MKIII. The gitzo 5542ls was also much heavier than expected and so decided to stick with my manfrotto 055 steel tripod. Looking forward to using the gimbal.



As I had said, Pro2 was way out of proportion for an 80-400.  The MKIII is smaller but you would certainly not have made the wrong choice with the Jr.  I know Ian the fellow that owns Jobu and he would have told you the same thing.  But hopefully the MKIII works out and you don't mind lugging it around.  I keep my old 055 for the gimbel too. I think it matches up well.
