Hi Ted,

yes, I like the monopod very much and use it in place of the tripod almost daily. It's light, yet feels very solid in the hand. It balances quite well with either the 50-200mm/E30 or the Sigma 135-400mm/E30. Having said that, I don't own a lens that weighs 7 lbs. so I'm not sure how well it would handle the 'big tuna'.

But, I would love to have that problem.............(smile).
