I know many sigh and roll their eyes at the question "best" tripod for me But i am going to ask anyway but try to narrow it down to make it easier for anyone wanting to help out with a tip or two. I own a D700 and usually use Portrait lenses and my biggest is a prime 180. I almost never use my other tripod an old Manfrotto for amateurs i got way back and that might be a reason i seldom take it with me. I realise its time to step up and get something i can carry with me more often then not. I was looking at the Manfrotto 055 XPROB and it seemed to fit my needs a bit. But im a pure novice and only read a few reviews about them and still not sure. My budget would be around 150-300 Euros, and of course i would want the best that money could buy even if its not that much, i realise that hehe. My wish would be something pretty light, easy to carry around but still effective when it comes to release it and keep it steady but at the same time easy to maneuver when its attached. Any reccomendation for this lost swede? /Martin.
