I want a tripod which works well for my Hy6-system, and also ocassionally for my D3 (biggest/longest lens would be the 200/2.0VR + TC however I use it mainly handheld) - so main use for Hy6.
Main use for landscape stuff.
I am not sure to either go:
2542 or 2531-explorer (would give me some flexibility for Macro things or also for eventually repro)
3541L or 3541 XLS: more stable, in case of the 3541 XLS even high enough to use without middle extension, but I find it pretty long to carry around (I like hiking)
Head I thought to go for the 2780.
Do you think the 2 serious is fine or should I go for a 3-series tripod?
Any experience regarding the head?
Thanks for any ideas or feedback, Tom
