IMO, buy the best you can possibly afford. A *good* Tripod is a lifetime investment. A cheap one is a waste of money. Stay away of 'consumer' types. Make sure you consider total maximum weight in buying both your sticks and head - then add 30% for the future.

Search 'tripod' in the FM Search engine - lots of good discussions!

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.

This is the model you asked for in your post. And you wrote B&H didn't had.

Weight and load specs are just a joke. How many lenses and bodies do you know that weigts 18KG. And it's not like you must use the top limits in the load rating.
gitzo have 30 other tripods with lower weight rating if you prefer that. They will of course be less stable even if you "only" use a 5kg load on them

You may want to pick up a sandbag for stabilizing the tripod. They come in handy.

I had the 3541LS but ended up selling it and getting a 3541XLS for the extra height. The XLS is a little bit longer and heavier, but the extra height flexibility has already come in handy numerous times.

I own the tripod and I'm 182 cm. It's face level for me. After attaching the head, clamps, L-plate and camera it's usually higher than my eyes

If you say that all Gitzo tripods have almost the same specification, then you have not looked at those Gitzo tripods. Or at their website. They have more than 50 different tripods with every kind of specification you can imagine.
If $ 700 is too much that's another thing.

if you are into that type of imaging you will use your tripod more then 2-3 times a month. but if thats the way you do it thats the way it is.

here is a list of good product in your range of $$$
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?atclk=Brand_Manfrotto&Ntt=tripod+legs&ci=15293&N=4294205295+4289361368

just remember everything you look to purchase hase the triangle equation involved. each corner of the triangle has one of these terms to deal with. you need to balance them to you needs. each will react to the other (otherwise known as compromise)
1- quality
2- rigidity
3- price
