Nice sturdy build quality!
Ballhead moves without friction and locks very well.
My Canon 40d with both the Sigma 27-70 2.8 and the Sigma 80-400 are no problem for this tripod nor the ballhead.
It is fairly stable on maximum hight, but the lowest leg parts are a bit flimsy and i don't know the wind (vibration) resistance yet.
But it's possible to put the legs in many positions so finding a stable setup should be no issue in general.
Finish of the ballhead is a little rough on the outside. The ball itself looks well finished though.
Legs could be bigger for a 8kg specified tripod. I'll say, till 5 kg your safe, above that you may want to keep the lowest leg parts retracted.
This tripod is not made off composite materials but made from ALU (the legs at least), so do not get confused with the earlier review above. This is not a real dissapointment in my opinion, but you might think different about it.
All in all, very great tripod for the money!
Some minor finishing blemishes on the ballhead outer finish.
