Gitzo Ocean Systematic tripods

Hi,

I've been looking for a tripod for the D800 that I'm going to buy in the near future. As it is important for me to be able to use the legs in salt water without worrying too much about the maintenance, I'm now seriously considering this model: http://www.gitzo.com/ocean-systematic-series-3-carbon-tripod-anti-corrosion-4-sec-gt3542los. I chose the 3 series Gitzo because I'd be able to get a new one cheaper than a 2 series one and the additional maximum load capacity is of course welcome.

So, the question is, has anyone got experience using the product (or ocean systematic series in general)? I'd be interested in hearing especially about the corrosion resistance, since that, for me, is what would justify the ridiculous price premium over the otherwise similar models.

Thanks in advance!
