Any concerns about expense melted away after a few hours with this absolutely great tripod. It is light weight, stiff, and quickly sets up and breaks down. I "upgraded" from a very old Gitzo G226 "Reporter," and I don't know why I waited so long.
The new GITZO GT2532 Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is beautifully made. The 3 (three) leg sections make it very fast to set up and take down. I am using a RRS BH-55 ballhead. This combination is perfect. Make sure you purchase the GITZO GC3101 padded tripod bag to go with it.
I use this tripped for a **mm spotting scope and it is a wonderful combination of stability at high magnification and light weight.
We have 2 other Gitzo tripods. They perform flawlessly for us in our outdoor photography. They set up quickly when it counts. Wildlife moves fast and the shots can be lost if you take too long setting up. No problem with these tripods. Legs extend and lock in seconds.
I bought this tripod to replace a Gitzo metal tripod. It was a shorter tripod to keep the weight down so I had to do a lot of bending over. I also had to use both the long and short center posts with it and swap the ball head all the time.
Highly durable and extremely rugged. I'm an ornithologist by trade, and that means I take my gear out into some nasty habitat. The Gitzo Mountaineer has never let me down. I do recommend purchasing the spike foot set if you do any outdoor work.
I have used the prior model GT 2531 for 3 yrs,( after using a Manfrotto 190B for 3 yrs) but the following points are valid. AS ALWAYS IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT IT FOR!!!A lighter one would be better for hiking extensively--Sure would!A Heavier one better for studio or Mega-Lens work--Sure would!
Excellent tripod. Easy set up and take down. A slight twist locks and unlocks. The locks are sized appropriate. They feel like they will last a long time. Very stable. Handles my D810 with 80-400 with ease. The 6x carbon is smooth and just pretty to look at.
This is my first tripod with twist locks for the leg sections. The G Lock Ultra leg locks are fast and easy to use. 1/4 turn to release, 1/4 turn to lock - super. The legs can be set independently at three different angles. I have used all three and combinations of the three.
I am a big fan of the Gitzo Systematic tripods, as I have a strong dislike of centre columns. This is because they add weight and bulk, get in the way when setting the tripod down low and significantly reduce stability when raised.
