I'm considering pairing a Cube with a Gitzo Series 5 tripod (GT5532LS), but I came across this blog post describing a potential problem:
fauxtoreal | A Small Problem with the Gitzo GT5562GTS SYSTEMATIC Tripod and Arca-Swiss C1 Cube Geared Tripod Head
It seems the Series 5 top plate is so large that it impedes operation of the panorama base lock on the Cube. Has anyone here experienced this problem? How did you solve it? I'd like to avoid raising the head as much as I can, it's already right at eye level for my particular height and camera.
