Got my tripod. The legs are decent. Very light and sturdy enough for most uses, although at full extension with my gripped 7D mounted, it's a little shaky. But at that height, the viewfinder is at my eye level, and I'm 6'-3". I think the trade-off from the my Manfrotto 055XPROB for travel is worth it, though.
I'm a little miffed because my ball head came damaged. Costco just stuck a shipping label on the tripod box and shipped it without putting it in an outer box. The box came squashed, although I don't think it damaged anything. But my ball head pan knob is broken. The knob just twists off the screw instead of winding the screw out to loosen the pivot. Like someone at the factory overtightened it. I was able to extract the screw and reattach it to the knob, but once it goes back into the ball head, the knob just twists off again. Maybe some Loctite will fix it. I had planned on replacing the head anyway, so I guess I'll live with it.
