The ball-head arrived today, and some of the other items...

Wow, the Sirui K-40X is massively large. I was expecting large, but I did not imagine this. I think the ball is nearly the size of a tennis ball.

Earlier this week the L-plate for my D80 and the longer-length Arca-Swiss plates for my 2 long-tele lenses arrived. So I have been fitting stuff and trying out on the new ball-head. The Sunpak carbon-fiber tripod is not complaining from the load yet. I put the Sigma 150-600mm + D7000 on and figured out how to balance it. I have to say, I thought I was committed to purchasing a gimbal or a fluid head to supplement this Sirui ball-head. That was when I was thinking about the K-30X (10mm smaller size). Trying out so far with the K-40X, I think I am good right now. It locks-down solid, but the proof will come with some photos, perhaps another set with the moon.
