    Heart warming Leica S story

    I bought into the Leica S system around 2012 starting with the Leica S006 with 3 x S lenses (S30mm CS, S70mm and S120mm CS), and later I upgraded the body to the S007.

    Hate to ask but?

    I currently have a Gitzo GT3452L and used it with my H6D100c Brick and currently use it with my D850 with 600mm f4 lens for birding. My wife has a Sirui T-1204XL and she uses that with her D500 and 500mm f5.6. I'm thinking that her tripod would be plenty big enough for the X1D but unfortunately...
