Gitzo G1327 Mountaineer Mk2 Carbon Fiber

G1327_1_
Review Date: Jun 6, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very rigid, easy to carry
Cons:
Again, don't over tighted the legs, and i still sometimes wish it were taller.

I have mainly used mine under a 300 f2.8L and a Kirk BH1 ball head.

I found noticable improvement in sharpness of my pictures, especially when using teleconverters, over my Bogen 3221 (and it weighs nearly two pounds less !).

I am only 5'6", and while i thought this pod was huge when i got it, i sometimes still wish the legset were a bit taller (to eliminate raising the column).

I find the column to be quite good, but rarely extend it over half was as with 13 lbs of camera / lens / ballhead on top, the whole rig tips much more easily.

Overall i am extremely satisfied with it, and would buy one again tomarrow if something happened to it.
