    I realize the expensive ballheads are worth every penny.
    But I am not going to be loading mine up with heavy gear.
    Here is my heaviest set up:
    MB-D80 grip
    80-200 f/2.8 AF-D

    all of this will sit ontop of the Gitzo 1228 I just purchased from Retief

    Suggestions? Price is a HUGE consideration

    I would recommend the Benro KS-2 ballhead. I got mine through eBay and am extremely happy with it. I use it for my D2H with SB800 and the 80-200 f/2.8 with Kenko 1.4X and it is rock solid. They are marketed under the Induro brands in the US but cost twice compared to eBay. I think I paid around $140 including shipping from China.
  3. I second the suggestion for the Benro KS-2 - a great value for the money.
    I also got mine on eBay (from "Link Delight"). It arrived from China within a week without a hitch - and their price is right!
