For anything remotely long lens, including a 300 (maybe with a 1.4x) if you Google long lens technique the advice is generally anything less than a Series 3 is not up to the job.

I agree.

EDIT.

If you want to take a landscape while hiking if you can get the composition sitting down with an elbow on each bent knee while cradling the lens you can often get better stability than with many lower priced tripods.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than the equipment being used.
