    My recommendation is to buy a decent tripod to start with, because if you buy a cheap one you'll get sick of it and buy another eventually. I just bought manfrotto 3021BPRO legs (number might not be quite right) and the pistol grip/ball head, which seems to work pretty well, it was around US$230 from B&H.

    I recommend looking at used pods/ballheads. There's not much to go wrong. I got my Bogen 3021 and Gitzo ballhead on e-bay for about half of what they would have cost new. You might also be interested in this article:

    Good call...Used can save some $$$ letting you get better gear. A good tripod is as important as a good lens.
