    ok so this 70-200 lens is getting heavier and heavier the more I am out with it. So anyone not using a monopod they are looking to sell or can recommend me one. I also prefer a head that just snaps onen and closed and not screws in place

    FM or POTN is a good place to shop for a used one. I found mine on Craigslist for about half price.

    I want to thank you for such a grand idea:rofl: I went there looking for a monopod, I left there the new owner of a grip (which I also am in need of)

    I have a Gitzo carbon fiber G1568 with a Manfrotto 3232 panhead. I used it for 10 minutes and stopped because I prefer panning without it.

    What is that pad you have on the leg of the monopod? I'm looking for something like that for my Gitzo tripod.

    on a very very small scale - maybe. Now If I went out for a capkeeper and came home with a 5D - THAT is pulling a jcolman :bowdown:

    Derrict - how much?


    maybe I wont use a monopod at the comps, I will just rest the lens on the guys head in front of me in the bleachers

    Looks like it sells for $170-190 from what I can find on various forums
    http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=502884

    I can do $170 shipped and paypal to lower 48 states. I wouldn't be able to ship it out until Tuesday, though. I have the original box.

    how slow of a shutter can you get away with using a monopod?
