1)Min folded height
2)Max extended height
3)Weight of tripod
4)Ball head or pan head type

Is your 80-200mm the f2.8 verson?
If yes, a normal ball head might not be able to hold it properly w/o slipping.
For less than $200 get the manfrotto 190 + 141RC. Have used that combo with F80+80-200/2.8. No problem.
For less than $150, you will have to look for a 2nd hand deal.
