    I have a 2228, so can share some exp with you.
    It is heavy, unacceptably heavy for a CF tripod.
    This is cos of the individual leg lock and lateral arm need a lot of metal structure,
    so the weight saving of the leg tubes are cancelled off.
    If you just want to take landscape or portrait, better spent a bit more and get the G1228 which is as tall/strong and save 1/2 KG.
    the idea of G2228 versatility, for macro and weird position work it is a god sent.
    The 2220 alu version has spike foot which the CF ver don't have, pay more and get less here.

    Are you going for a photo gathering anytime soon?
    You can try my 2228 to have a feel. (better than go CP and see their face)

    Tripod head cost a bomb. Any head cheaper than that?

    Manfrotto 308RC cost only $65. Highly recommended.
