Pros: Light weight, easy to use
difficult to go vertical

I have the head mounted on a Gitzo G1228 and use it to support the Canon 20D with the Canon 400m/5.6L lens estimated to weigh about 18 lbs. I have plates for both my cameras and this lens.

It is a not a suitable arrangement for following fast moving targets such as birds in flight.

Overall, I'm pleased with it, knowing it's limitations.
