I am in the market for a carbon fiber tripod with a geared center column. I currently have the 2 series travelor Gitzo model GK2580QTR legs. I use it with a manfrotto 410 geared head. I shoot mostly architecture and landscapes and find the rapid column on the Gitzo to be a pain to get into position with all the weight on it. I know Gitzo makes a 2 series with a geared column but was wondering if anyone knows if they make a geared column for the 3 series carbon fiber models. I like gitzo but I would also consider other brands. I did just buy the Manfrotto 057 but that monster is going back to B&H. Way too big!

Thanks in advance,
