    Manfrotto offers a long lens support to move the cg more to the center. I am looking to get one for my long 80-200 as well. Listed for us$60+ in amazon, I have yet to get a quote from local stores.

    Sirui R1004 + G10, $120 @ TK Foto.

    i have the Sirui R1204 + K10x and boy i love it! only differences between the 2 is that the former is made out of aluminium and the latter utilises carbon fibre. K10x ballhead has a heavier max load and the knobs do not drop out when you unscrew it all the way. the build is better and the tolerance is tighter too, i guess.
