The tripod weight (basically a CGE Pro tripod; beefier than the old CGE tripod) is over the top for a 40# to 50# capacity mount. The tripod weighs more than the rest of the mount for Chrissakes! 45# versus 22# for the tripod on the standard CGEM. That really hampers the portability of the mount, with only a scant 10# increase in payload capacity.
