Bought this lens for my wife's SL1 but I end up borrowing it a lot of the time.

I especially like the first shot. Beautiful light.
Thank you for all the great recommendations. The Uniqball is a new one to me and looks interesting.If you are considering a future upgrade of your tripod to something bigger, like a Gitzo 3-series or RRS 3-series, the BH-55 may well make sense and be a good choice. I have been very happy with that head. But I can use my 2540F, which is quite close to your 2542L, and the BH-40 with a 1DX/70-200 f2.8L IS II combo, with absolutely no problem. By weighing down the tripod, using the built in hook, I am sure I could also go further, but then I would normally prefer gimbal heads.I have the 2540F, with the RRS BH-40 head. Which works well. I have a BH-55 also, but I use that on a larger RRS TVC-34. I don´t really see the point of having a lighter tripod, just to weight it down with a heavy head.
Yes, this makes sense. The reason I was thinking about the BH-55 is the price difference is really not that much different than the BH-40 and I would not have to upgrade in the future (other than legs) if I did go bigger. Along with everyone seems to love this head. But if it might be unstable it defeats the purpose. I did buy the 2 series to save some weight for hiking but I do have a lighter weight ballhead (Sirui K30) currently I could swap out. Just trying to avoid buying twice and get the best quality I can. Down the line I can see the value of having two different setups and might buy a 3 series too. All the advice is great and thanks again (currently using RRS L Bracket)

For sunsets over the ocean, get a Singh-Ray reverse ND grad.
