    Congrats dude ... envy you... how much does b&h charge for shipping.. Me planning to get a telescope from them.. In Singapore they cost a bomb..

    I thought 1228 is CF tripod and weighs only 1.5kgs.. if you want to know what does "Carrying stones" mean then you should try my Manfrotto 055 + 141 combo (3.2kgs nett) ...

    The cost of the G1228+shipping from BHPhotovideo is more than the cost of a G1325 at Cathay.

    You should have bought a G1325 from Cathay and traded it with Darren's G1228

    Gitzo 1325 was under S$900 at CP when I last checked; seems like prices have gone up?
