Here's a specific recommendation: Gitzo 3540LS with a Manfrotto 405 or 410 geared head. The bubble levels in the head are very accurate. Level them out and shoot. I use this combo with all my T/S lenses - 17, 24, 35, 45, and 90. And, I added the Gitzo friction lock center column as well. I know that some say it makes the pod less stable, but I just don't see it in actual use and the utility can't be beat. Finally, I use the RRS L Plate on the camera and put one of their quick release clamps on top of the Manfrotto. The clamp is marked with graduations that you can use to keep the sensor in the same plane for stitched shots, eliminating parallax errors in the stitch. This stuff isn't cheap, but then neither was you lens.
