I've bought several copies of this tripod. Known in Canada as a Manfrotto 055 . It works well, takes a pounding and keeps on going. As mentioned the metal gets cold in winter and needs a leg cover to continue using it in sub zero climates. I use them with a manfrotto 168 ball head (no longer made) and a 029 pan/tilt head.

very compact lens for a 150mm macro. Works very well for both closeups and for general shooting, produces very sharp clean images. Can be used with either a 1.4x tc or a 2x tc, but lens automatically disables autofocus if it detects a TC .

I find it to be a excellent great performing lens. It is big, the filter size is 105mm and the polarizer for it cost me 260$ . And it is heavy but with practice can be handheld, though a tripod is recommended. It works well and produces good results with both a 1.4x tc and with the 2x tc, I have not yet tried with both tc a the same time. Quite happy with the purchase.
