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

I have been looking for the same and probably only want to invest in one reverse, at least to start. Also new to grad ND so would you go with 2 or 3 stops if you only bought one, mostly used for sunsets over water. (will probably also buy 2 stop hard/soft).

I know at times I sound like a Peak Design shareholder which I'm not, but I am an unashamed advocate.

I have also been using the Peak Capture Pro on a backpack for hiking for a few months. Really like how stable the camera is while scrambling up and down hills, even with a 70-300 L on it.

I have been using the Lowepro Flipside Sport 15 and really like it. Light weight, plenty of room for 6D, 70-300L, 16-35, speed light and more. Dedicated tripod straps, water reservoir pocket and rain cover. Also like being able to change lenses without fully removing.

... 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.

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.
