Hmm interesting. I was considering the LX-5 and the C-2540 as well but if the LX-3 can hold your 100-400 properly than I guess the LX-5 would be overkill.

I remember when I had ordered mine that the tracking really wasn't .
13 or 15 days mine arrived in to ny

Is it USPS that finally delivers it?

The eBay seller has responded with "I had contact USA post now. Did you get item?" I'm not really sure what this means. He contacted USPS and so what? Did they say it was delivered? o.O

I've used the tracking number with track-trace.com/post (this is the site the seller told me to use) as well as USPS's track & confirm. Still, track-trace has not been updated since Nov 30 with no evidence of it being delivered or even arriving in the US. And USPS's site does not recognize the tracking number.

My mailman is very good with getting me my mail and leaving the pink slips in my mailbox when I am not home to sign - and I haven't received any package notices as of yet.

:(

packages from asia can take long time to arrive, and USPS tracking is not really good, they don't have to scan the package at each step.

That's ture. v35skyline: It takes time to arrive, but it will come. Just wait.
If the status shows "Handed over to air carrier INCHEON" it means that the package is sended to you by the seller. Incheon has a international airport.

Agreed, I'm wondering it it would be too big with the 2540 though. It seems like the LX-5 is usually paired with the C-3540V.

I think that LX-3 is study for 100-400. Forks well with mine 70-200mm F4 and 40D.
Also my frend's Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 forks well.
Ofcourse you coud go with LX-5 if you have money for that.

I think and I may be wrong....that one of the main differences between 5 and 3 is the panning tension

my first manfrotto did not have the lx-5 does and I like it

I looked at them, but I am starting to look more at: http://www.hejnarphoto​store.com/ (external link)

Especially, the multipurpose rails. Hard to find a L plate for my 40d these days. It looks like you can put two of his multipurpose rails together to form a L plate.
