I use this tripod with a Wimberley gimbal mount (version 2) for my 300-800mm Sigma telephoto lens with Nikon D series cameras. It is superbly solid in its support. I had bee using another carbon fiber tripod that supports 40 pounds but the difference is incredible. If you use lenses that are larger than 400 f2.8 you NEED this tripod!
I use this with a Wimberly WH-200 for my Sigma 300-800mm and either a Nikon D3 or D800 and it is a superb support. It is the sturdiest tripod I have ever used and I highly recommend this tripod.
