Great purchase"I bought this tripod as soon as it went on sale instead of the other Manfrotto I had intended to get.
Weight wise, it's a bit heavier (by about 1 lb) and a bit taller than the MK293A4-A0RC2, but it comes with the same ball head.
So far I have been very pleased with it. It is sturdy and can go quite low to the ground unlike my old tripod. This makes it great for those low to the ground shots and macro's. You can also invert the centre post for even lower shots if necessary.
The quick release plate is a snap to use and easy to put on your camera with the D-ring.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase even though I've only had it for a couple of weeks. I would say it was worth the investment so far."
