question

Would this Ball Head be a good fit for Gitzo GT2532 Mountaineer Tripod? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: LI L.
I do not have the same tripod as yours but I believe the ball head should fit to your tripod. I do not use this ball head and all I do is hand-held.

question

Has any one used this with a large telephoto lens, such as a Sigma 150-500mm? Was there any drifting or creep?
Asked by: Walter W.
This is a very sturdy ball head. I use it with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. I can easily take a photo of Saturn and have it not blurred to to motion or slippage.
