Re: A worthy Peak Design challenger around $200

I’ve done some field work with the XT-15 over the last few days and I’m impressed. Did some twilight photos around 1/4 to 1/2 second with Sony A7RIV and fairly heavy 24-105 lens shot at longer end of range. Most done with center column extended. Very sharp, even with extended mag pixel peeping. The legs extend and log quickly and intuitively, quicker than the Peak Design I think. And I’ve had leg slippage on my PD by failing to secure one of the locks, so I don’t see the Marcase lock system as a disadvantage. I’ve already sold my PD and don’t miss it.
