Any thoughts on the Gitzo GT4542LS ( 4 series )? I've not found much review out there or any ratings on the normal sites: BH or Adorama.

Any benefit over getting a 3 series systematic: GT3542LS? They are rated to both hold 55lbs. The 4542LS is about 3.5 inches taller.



You might want to consider a 5 series like the 5532LS instead of the 4542LS, especially if you're using 800mm lenses. The 5532LS is close to the same weight, height, and price as the 4542LS but noticeably more stable.



That is a pretty good price, but it's only a 3 section which is longer closed, shorter max height and weighs 1.5 lbs more than the GT4542LS. Not sure that I need an 88lbs load capacity. I would think that 55lbs capacity is sufficient. Especially when my 3 series is able to hold the weight of the 800mm no problem...just the vibration of the center column is a problem.
