I think that is a wonderful present. I wish my family would think of getting me great camera stuff, but they never know what to get me.

Yes, for the money it is a very good combination for sure.

My wife will be buying me a 1Ds 1v for my birthday. She just does not know it yet. Actually the next 50 birthdays might be more acurate if I make History by living long enough. Maybe if I add in Christmas?

Thanks guys. Will post some pics at the weekend.

My wife has bought me a 580EXII. The tripod and head are from my two sons (5 and 2.5 years!!).

Now to work on the 85mm f1.2L.....

DarthSparky,

Is it stable with the gripped 5DmkII? Would like to know how it is with the 580EXII and lens mounted.

I'm thinking of getting this 190CXPR04 and 488RC2 combo rather than 055CXPR04 and 488RC2.

Heaviest lens I am planning to mount on it would be a 5dmkII gripped with possibly an 85L and a 580EXII.

Manfrotto's configurator site says "not really recommended" because it is limited by the tripod weight loading of 5kg. Even minus 300g for the 488RC2, I would theoretically have sufficient for my needs (4.7kg), but am curious about stability.

Thanks.

It's rock solid with the gripped 5D2, even with the lens and 580EXII mounted. I only have the 24-105 at the moment, but i think an 85 1.2L on there would be fine.

From memory, the configurator prefers you to match weight load of the tripod and head. I wanted a small, lightweight tripod, and an unobtrsuive head. It'll be a long time before I can afford a lens that'll unbalance this combo I think!!

I'm delighted with it. I researched alot before i went for this - considering Giottos (didn't like the look as much as the manfrotto) and Gitzo (nice, but i didnt want to pay the premium for the name).
