    Hey just wondering if anyone had messed with a Gorillapod Focus yet, When I picked up my new lens last week I noticed it at the shop. Looked pretty beffy and was supporting a D90 with a 70-200 2.8. I'm really not sold on gorillapod's but this one really sparked my interest.

    I have just the regular Gorilla pod and it's sturdy as hell. I keep it in my pack for those occasion when I need level support on the go, and my tripod is at home.

    Well I go it,,, I must say after messing with it this thing is a beast!!! I put my D90 with 70-200 2.8 on it and just set up in many different ways seems to be pretty solid even upside down.
