Ok, I know jack squat about tripods folks, for the last 3 years I have been using a flimsy aluminum Sony tripod that was intended for a small Handycam, that has a cheap plastic head. I can't believe I have mounted thousands of dollars in equipment atop this flimsy piece of crap for so long, I'm long overdue for a decent tripod.
The cameras I will be using a 5D2 and occasionally a 1D2, with the largest lens being a 70-200 2.8 (Non IS). I suspect that my flash will be on there every once in a while as well.
I know there are a few threads on the subject, but I would REALLY appreciate some help here from folks with actual hands-on experience from the particular tripod model(s) they recommend. I would just like to get the tripod and head all in a "Kit" and not have to fool with ordering separate pieces, but I'm open to all suggestions.
