Heads up! Leica is getting into (or I should say, expanding into) the tripod and ballhead business. They're hoping to round out their accessory offerings in the Leica Stores. This is completely new from their tabletop tripod, which has been around for ages.
The line-up includes the Travel Tripod (made of carbon and aluminum), two ball heads (24 and 38) and a Cordura nylon bag. Each ball head comes with three disks and more can be purchased individually.
It looks like a pretty sweet setup; a bit pricey but not overly so. Full details, images and prices for those interested:
