    I need something decent for a 5D + 17-40L up to a 1Dmk2 + 2x + 400/5.6L

    What do I need, I know the better ones come with legs and then you get a ball head or whatever you want separate.

    What are options at a decent price level?

    You better have damn good support if you want to use a 400mm with a 2x TC. Cheap and good do not go together here.

    055 with a good head should hold it.
