| p.1 #3 · Differences between Gitzo monopds - GM2541 & GM 3551 |
I like my Gitzo GM3551 combined with my Really Right Stuff monopod head. My biggest lens is a little lighter than yours, and for it I also would not want to have a lighter monopod than the 3551. I have never used a stronger monopod than it, but I do not have any larger lenses like you and Lars do.
The GM3551 has a lot of height available, and has 5 sections, so for most uses you do not need to extend the smallest section at all. In that configuration you have more stiffness than the rating might represent. I happen to like the extra length occasionally, but only need it for special situations.
