    Perhaps you can head down to Tk photo and have a look at Sirui CF tripods, value for money!

    Take a look at Velbon Ultra VOXi L :

    http://www.velbon.co.uk/newvelbon/pages/VoxiL.html

    Tripod can reached a height of 1.7m with center column not extended.
    No doubt that max weight is 3.5Kg but doubt you will really exceed that load.

    I had used on my D700+24-120F4 ===> No problem.

    Suggest u go to take a look on the SIRUI tripod, compact n yet stable. Would recommend either T12xx or T22xx series depend how small u want.
