    Wow, with 70-200 lens, and in $150, is almost impossible.... Try benro, A300EX, not sure can withstand the total weight or not....

    Possible. Can also try Manfrotto's 190 non-Pro series.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    how heavy you need the legs to support? can look at this old school tripod http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450021

    default head handles 2kg easily but the legs look like its designed for much much heavier loads.

    tradeoff for being cheap and yet solid is the weight. carry this thing around is like carrying a SAR 21.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    Can try this : http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=433241

    Holds my 70-200 + 400D + Grip + 580EXII well enough when tightened well. However, I'd advise you not to skimp on tripods unless you wanna spend more eventually if you take your photography to another level.
