400mm f/5.6L Support
I posted this on the Photo Accessories Forum but, this might be a more appropriate forum for this post.
I have purchased (but have not yet received) a 400mm f/5.6L lens which I expect to use for wildlife photography as well as other general telephoto venues such a boat races and air shows.
I will be using this ,ens mostly on either a tripod or on a monopod.
I am wondering if a Gimbal Head such as the Manfrotto 3421 would be worth the approximate $200 that it would cost.
I have a Manfrotto Midi Ball Head (48 which I use either on my tripod - Manfrotto 3001P - or manfrotto monopod.
The Ball head is a 488. For some reason I keep getting a happy head instead of the second 8 despite trying to edit the happy head out.
I am leaving next month for the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, so I won't have much time to test out the lens using the 488 ball head - so I'd like to rely on the experience of Forum members as to whether the purchase of the Gimbal head would be a good idea!
