yes , i just bought t-1005x, i compared it side by side to the benro A-069 as well earlier, t-1005x is more stable. too bad, they dun have t1004x in shanghai yet, which is strange...t2205x is more longer and stable but it's much heavier for my travel needs.
imo, the e-pl1 (m43) body in general if mount with heavy lens, it may creep more than a dslr as the camera body is much shorter and lighter. so it's more front heavy, so I will need to take care of the creeps probably more than a typical dslr?
my heaviest setup to test fotopro would be e-pl1+mmf1 (43-m43 adapter) +70-300mm = 330+83+615 = close to 1kg
but my heaviest setup used to test sirui t1005x is e-pl1+konica AR adapter + konica hexanon 50mmf1.4 = 330+50+290 = 670g and it much shorter as well (roughly 8cm difference).
so u can see my test on the 2 pods are different setup as fotopro test in singapore, sirui test done yesterday and today with 50mmf1.4.
so basically i plunge into sirui t1005x+g20 coz of the good reviews so far, my "limited testing" due to lack of heaviest setup has given me confidence, and opportunity to get it now in shanghai at 20% lower than singapore . hopefully it doesn't creep with my 70-300 when i test it later today when back singapore. guess the BBB bug just made me irrational,..haha
Disclaimer: i ain't no photography / tripod pro, this is my first investment to a good tripod, so pls do test it yourself with your heaviest setup. And TK foto & artworkfoto both has good service, but sorry I can't give them mine this time
