Got it, thanks. One more quick follow up question. I see in this thread and others that the BH-55 is being paired with the 24L. Will the BH-40LR suffice or is the BH-55LR (or one of it's variants) recommended?
I have both. The BH-55 is the ultimate head and if you don´t mind the price and weight, it is the one to go for. But for the use you describe, you should be happy with the BH-40. I would recommend their L-bracket for your body though, for portrait shots.
