    Sachtler FSB-6 or Ace L - both 13LB max weight? Which one?

    Which one would you get? Sachtler FSB-6 or Ace L (new one with the carbon sticks) - both 13LB max weight???
    They have the same max weigh limit. Ace is slightly lighter which I
    prefer because I work with my wife. I don't mind that it is plastic. The
    Ace is around $800-$950. The FSB is slighly more expensive. I would use
    it with a Nikon D4 + 70-200 2.8 VR + audio.
    Which one should I get? It seems to me that the ACE is the same for less.... What do you think?

    I had the SACHTLER FSB 6 MD and loved it.

    Only drawback I see on the ACE is that it is Carbon Fiber and new
    enough that it is a bit of an unknown with respect to durability.

    D4 is not much weight by itself but the lever arm of the long lens will make
    dampening a bit more of an issue as the weight is a bit away from center point.

    Sachtler is a great choice...and the 6 really is not that heavy.
