Title says it all. Looking for a good tall travel tripod and it seems most recommendations are for the Feisol. However, I would like to be sure it can handle my largest lens prior to purchasing. Unfortunately, I live far from any locations that would stock this caliber of tripod, so there is no chance to go and try one out.
In searching I have found the Sirui M3204 which on paper exceeds the Feisol in every catagory, with the only negitive being the weight at 3.7 lbs/1.7Kg. and also about one inch longer retracted. The Sirui has 32mm legs vs 28mm for Feisol, so it is an apples and oranges comparison.
I am wondering if the Feisol will do the job, or get the bigger Sirui to be on the safe side. They both are very similar in price, so it doesn't factor in.
Oh, I do not plan on hiking with it. Just planes, trains and automobiles!
