    Sigma 18-35 1.8 or Tamron 15-30 2.8

    Yes, I know and yes, usually 22mm were enough, but sometimes I did wish to have a little more "space". No. Most of my shots overall are 18-30mm. 16-20 only applies for the Sigma 10-20mm. My point there was, that I usually don't need the ultra-wide-angle of 10-14mm. Actually, I want at least...

    Small ballhead for Gitzo G1027 MK II

    Small ballhead for Gitzo G1027 MK II

    Hi, I recently bought a Gitzo G1027 Mk II and I'm looking for a neat little ballhead for this tripod. The heaviest setup is a D7100 with a Sigma 18-35 1.8 (approx. 1.5kg/3.3lbs) and I will use no focal length longer than 50mm on this tripod. I did think about the Gitzo G1178M, mainly, because...
