This thing is a beast and solid as a rock. It would get 5 stars but the legs move around a little too easy for my taste (not the height but the lateral movement). I have a series 3 too and the legs on that one stay put when you position them. I wish this series 5 was the same way.
I bought this for a grab and go telescope tripod and so far it exceeds my expectations. I'm glad I went with the 3 sections instead of 4 for the quicker setup. I will say the hook on the bottom is kinda bleh but easily upgraded for 2 bucks at a home improvement store.
I purchased this tripod to use with Nikon's 600mm and a Gimbal head. The lens is heavy but the tripod is rock solid. It was a great platform to work from. Just returned from a wildlife shoot on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The tripod was quick to set-up and is light for the load it will easily handle.
This tripod is incredibly study and built like a tank. Maybe it's even a bit of an overkill for my purposes. It will support my entire weight (180#) so a DSLR and 400 mm lens is easily supported.
My previous tripod was flacid compared to this marvelously stable hunk of wonderful technology.
I asked and researched tripods for several months and came up with I think is a solid platform for any long lenses. One will feel you could change an engine in there truck with one of these...
This is actually the second one of these I bought. I had one I have been using with a ball head attached. When I purchased a Wimberley full gimbal head, I bought this one so I wouldn't wear the threads out changing them. This is a superb quality, very stable tripod.
I use this tripod for nature photography in the field. The gear I load onto it is a Canon EF600mm f/4L IS USM with a 2X extender on a Canon 1D MarkIV. That all swings from a JOBU Pro gimbal mount. So the the gear weighs about 21 pounds and this tripod handles it perfectly. It is rock solid!!!
i have a gt3532s and it is quite good, but compare to this, the GT5532LS is much more heavy and much stable,it is really a wonder tripod, and i think it should be top end tripod
Pricey and justifiably so. Light and ultra solid mount for big glass. Reeks of quality and works flawlessly so far. Set aside some more cash for the case too (Gitzo). ...and the ball mount (Arca-swiss). ...and the gimbal mount (Wimberley sidekick). ..
