I have a Nikon 600mm f/4 and was looking at medium-load tripods, not wanting to spend the extra few hundred dollars for this Series 5, but in the field it is so stable and quick to adjust that I'm glad I went "heavy." It's very precisely and thoughtfully designed and constructed.
Feel solid but the locking twisters could use improvement. A cheaper Chinese cf tripod has a better locking. Not sure a larger tripod has to be bit rough in this regard for any reasons. Time will tell how well it will hold a heavy load in windy condition.
Amazing piece of equipment, sturdy and easy tp use.
I have the previous version (2010-2011) of this tripod. The new up-grades are just added perks to an already excellent pro carbon fiber tripod. I added to mine Gitzo leg wraps, a Gitzo leveling plate (which I blue Loctited in place along with the locking bolt.) Now not needed (if it ever really was.
This is a great tripod for the money. Nice & light, yet very, very stable. Leg locks could be a bit of a pain for some, but after 5 years with a Miller CF tripod i am more than used to it. Leg spikes are awesome, & allow great purchase on even the hardest ground.
