I think I'm getting close to placing an order. I did some spec comparison between the Feisol 3442 and the Gitzo GT2541 and it seems like the Feisol is better than the GT2541 in almost all of the major categories including height, folded length, and weight. Am I reading this correctly?
How many of you guys opted to get the centre column? In the past, I have rarely used the centre column, but there have been situations where it did came in handy for me. I think the stability issue might be less of an issue when used with CSC/ILC (i.e. Sony NEX). Part of me thinks I should get it and leave it in the suitcase so that I'll at least have it to use when I need to rather than have no option at all. Comments?
Also does anyone here know the lowest price the Feisol 3442 have sold for? I think I'm going to give Feisol a chance even though I have enjoyed Gitzo products over the past 5 years.
