I just received my new Sirui K-40X. I've gotta say, the thing is a beast. I could probably sit my fat ass on it and have it hold me. At first I though that I over bought, but no, the thing is great. Locks tight, friction control is wonderful (first head I've ever had with this feature). I love it. All controls are smooth and precise. Fit and finish are top notch. For $175, it can't be beat. If your in the market for a first rate head, take a serious look at the 40X.

I was waiting for these to come back in stock at BH (only $165), but then I scored a kirk BH1 for the same price, so went that route. Not sure why BH1's sell for so inexpensive, but it's the same size as the sirui, and made in the USA.

I have had my K40x for over 2 years now and find it to be very good. It will support any, current, production lens with a pro body. As you state controls are smooth and lockup is good. It is probably more head than you or I need - but it works and it works well!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).
