    That’s the exact combination that I have. You will not be disappointed.

    Can’t help with the fluid head. I know RRS makes one but it’s stupidly expensive, even compared to the stuff you and I own from them already.

    Yes, you’ll need either a quick release plate or an L bracket.

    Sorry, thought that was implied.

    An L bracket is considered the best tool if you use a tripod often. The RRS version is around $150. You can get third party ones for $50-70

    If you just want a standard QR plate you’d need an Acra-Swiss plate. You can get third party ones on amazon for $20.
