Been using this for a while now. 2540 and Markins M10 with RRS plate. Works like a charm. Is there anything new out worth looking at or is this still a good setup?

As long as this setup properly supports your gear, why change? What's the longest lens you're using? Typically, a 2-series Gitzo is OK up to a 300/4.

24-70 the biggest How about new gear? How are the RRS pods compared to the Gitzo's any new ballhead models out?

The RRS tripods look great, and I'd love to have one, but like you, I'm perfectly happy with my GT2540LVL and BH-40 setup. Perhaps the RRS tripod is better, but whether it's enough to matter, I couldn't say. I most often use the Gitzo at well under its recommended capacity.

As for new ballheads, not much new out there at the high-end, but I'd love to see RRS and Markins release something a lot less massive, to keep pace with the trend of lighter tripods.

If is works, don't fix it.
