Quote:Jeff, i found that some so-called experts claim that the GAM 2014 tripod is overkill for the TV-85 ? is the tripod manfrotto bogen 475B digital pro geared, black tripod legs. max payload 26.50 lbs. height 16.6-74" that is on the adorama photo web site, the one you are referring to? also i thought that the pentax 3-6 zoom would eliminate some ep's. is that not a good idea? also do you use a barlow? and or a 1 1/4 60 degree everbrite diagonal? thanks guy. there were also a few that bought the quickpoint, but after awhile replaced it w/starbeam.
Quote:Jeff, thats the discontinued model.
