What camera do you have?

One head holds 30kg the other 40kg; one costs about $500+ the other $600$. Unless you've got some seriously heavy gear, the Q3 should meet your needs. However, if you've got a camera that's bigger than the entry level DSLRs, they would look better on a M10, eventhough the Q3 would be enough to hold them.

Either head will hold your camera together with its lens and other accessories. Only difference is that the M10 is larger and will look better with large lenses and/or cameras.

M10 looks better on a 190 Pro but if you are using something like a Gitzo 55T or similar than the Q3 fits like a glove. The M10 is slightly bigger and heavier but both should be able to hold what you described.

I would recommend to go with the M10, I am currently using the M10 with nikon's 70-200f2.8+TC. The ball size feels just right, any smaller and it's likely to feel pretty awkward.

As many hv mentioned, the M10 also gives u more leeway just in case u acquire larger lenses in future.
