Default Manfrotto and K7

Hi all, Happy Thanksgiving! I need a new tripod for my K7, and was wondering if this would be good. The cost $130.00 which fits my budget nicely. It will have to support my K7, and the 55-300 da zoom lens. http://www.amazon.com/...ef=redir_md...2?a=B0015MFTH6

How tall are you? This one wouldn't adjust high enough for me.
  • 3-section legs extend up to 46.6 inches without center column extension.
  • Reversible center column allows for an extra high adjustment of 57.0 inches.
Also, I didn't see anything stating its maximum weight capacity. Those are important things to consider before pulling the trigger.

Height is a biggie. That was one of the tough things for me when I was looking a few years ago. I ended up with a Manfrotto and trigger type head (which I do love), but paid more than I'd intended because I was snowed over by the sale person. And, I'd done my research - I thought.

Anyway, take a look at this one in your price range, too - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...specifications

I think this is similar to the one I had been looking at when I got the Manfrotto instead. I wish I'd bought it instead.
