Lots of good comments here but one note of caution if I may. I have both the Cube and the D4 Geared. The D4 has twice been back to Arca because I find the knobs hard to turn to the extent that at the end of a long day my fingers are somewhat sore. The advice from Arca was that it is fine and would loosen up with use but it hasn't. I seen others that are much better than mine so it's just something that I would suggest a prospective buyer checks carefully. My use case is Landscape not Macro but for me the Cube is the one.
