I think, what's central to my resignation on this issue, is that
a) I've learned the world isn't designed for people such as myself. When I was a touring musician, I can't tell you how many times I tried to shave at a hotel sink that rested at thigh-level.
b) my photographic 'vision' or perspective is not necessarily a physical one.
I hear you there, I'm 6'7". There's all kinds of stuff us tall guys can't do or have that "normal" people never think twice about. Few of my friends have cars I can sit in, buying a sleeping bag is a struggle, gotta have a California King bed so my feet don't hang off, I hit my head on pipes at work that everyone else walks right under, the list goes on and on! People don't get it when I say I wished I was 6'2", but I thought that height was great!
But my Gitzo GT3541LS is pretty darn good with my gripped 40D. I do wish it was 1-2" taller, but overall it's great.
