p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Gitzo Explorer G2258 vs. GT2541EX


In shopping for a 4-section CF Gitzo Explorer, I'm having a hard time finding a side-by-side comparison showing key differences between the G2258 and GT2541EX. The "Product Comparison" tool over at Gtizo's site (http://www.gitzo.com/product_comparison/) is only marginally helpful. It seems to indicate that the newer GT2541EX has a bubble level (yawn), insignificantly small differences in max heights, weight, twice the carrying capacity, and a minimum height of 3.0cm vs " - " for the G2258.

Is that really it?

edit 6:57pm PST 9/26: I can also find no information on the improvements made in the GT2541EX over the GT2540EX...

the capacity is substantially different to begin with.

the difference between the 2540ex and the 2541ex is a simple allen screw added to the platform to prevent your chosen head from back spinning off. I had the 2540ex and made it into a 2541ex by just replacing the platform.

the capacity of the 2540/41ex is in excess of 25lbs were the 2258 is approx 14lbs

in the end its more then meets the eye.

to be clear:

2540ex vs. 2541ex = one screw

2540ex & 2541ex vs. 2258 = carrying capacity

correct?
