... GT2542L fell off Gitzo website......

item #:GT2543L (replaces GT2542L )
Price for the new GT2543L is a lot higher than the B&H price for the GT2542L, plus B&H is including expedited shipping. Nature's way of telling you, now.
 
.

Thanks for the link, I didn't notice they also put the GT2543L up. I agree, GT2542L is on the way. Thanks for everyones help.

I have the Gt2531 (previous version with 3 leg sections) and I find it is quite happy with my 300 F2.8 with or without extenders. If you are not too concerned with the collapsed length then I find the 3 leg section versions to be quicker to set up and a little more rigid. It is not a big difference but it does help.

I was considering the GT2531 but the only reputable place I could find it was $110 more.

Does it seem odd that all of a sudden today the GT2542L fell off Gitzo website. It has been there the last week and today I can't seem to find it. Discontinued I guess, maybe that is why B&H has it so low?

Thanks Eldar, that helps me with my decision. Good to know the BH-40 is sufficient too.

Software & Accessories / Advice on which Gitzo tripod

I am in the process of replacing my 25 year old Bogen tripod and because of the great advice on this forum I am going to splurge for the Gitzo's. I am using a 6D and the longest lens I anticipate using is a 70-300L or maybe a 100-400 when the next version comes around.

I am leaning towards the GT2542L since it is $100 or so cheaper than the GT2541/2531 and like the weight/price. But am wondering if that is enough support or if I should move up to the GT2542LS or GT2542/2532 for more weight capacity/stability. This would mean a couple hundred more dollars though.

I would like to save the half a pound and the $200 but don't want to undersize myself. Appreciate any advice from users.

Thanks

I bought mine for $1,399 (after $200 rebate) in July from B&H. If I recall it was a little cheaper in the beginning of the year but was buying other stuff at the time. I waited as long as I could but figured it wasn't going to get any cheaper in the summer and needed it for vacation. Price went up 2 weeks later.

I had also bought a refurb from Canon (I think $1,150 at the time) but had an issue with the AFMA and decided to return and buy new. Love this lens, no regrets about price here. Great for travel.
