I think the BH-55 is a little big for the Gitzo 2 series. How much do you plan on going to 400mm on the tripod? You might want to think about stepping to the 3 series legs. Then a BH-55 would be great. I have the 100-400 too and have used it on my tripod but if I spent a lot of time at the long end, I'd have gotten a beefier setup.

Wow that's a serious setup for someone without any heavy, long lenses.

I have a much simpler walk-a-round landscape set-up but i don't have any pics of it atm.

I used to go exclusively 17-40 / 70-200 on landscapes with my 5d1, but now with the 5d2 im mostly 24-70.

I really do miss the 17-40 / 70-200 combo for landscapes, but my work is more relevant to the 24-70. :(

I take the 100 macro with me, and decide between OFC or booze.

Feel free to call me Case.

i think it is perfect. i have to lower it about 5 to 6 inches to see out the viewfinder.
and it is crazy sturdy.
