    I believe the last MO for M10 by Darren have some extra that is left at Eastgear. Good price too. You may want to take a look. Can get Wimberly and Markin at CP as well. As for Kirk http://www.kirkphoto.com/ I think you may have to order via web. Another web site to look for plates is RRS http://reallyrightstuff.com/ they have similar stuff.

    I am using a Wimberly for my 70-200 but find the Kirk custom plate better.
    Also using a Kirk custom plate for my D70, very well made.

For my current shooting needs, a good ballhead with a monopod and the VR lens should be able to cover most situations (except long exposures, but I don't shoot much of that). Then when I've got more $ in the future, I'll invest in a good tripod and can re-use the head and QR plates.

    BTW, anyone know the price for Markins M-10 in SIngapore? How about RRS, Kirk and Wimberly QR plates for the D70 and 70-200 f/2.8VR lens?

    Wow....i see lots of $$$ equipment here. Can only afford a $36 MAnfrotto 234RC trying to master the usage of a monopod. You guys make good money from your shots?

    Hmm, the joys of the internet I suppose... I wrote mine in 1999, his site is copyrighted 2000-2004... mind you, I'm not necessarily implying anything, aside from the fact that anything on the internet can be pinched.
