    re. 3 Legged Thing - I am very satisfied with my Punks Billy plus ball head. It's lightweight & comes with the smaller of their ball heads. Build quality seems very good but I'm not got a lot to compare it with.

    Plus, I only really use it with the smaller lenses but one leg detaches to become a monopod and that can be quite handy for the 100-400 on occasion. I would recommend looking into their range for something that will take the 500.

    I agree there is no simple answer. A gimbal will work for long lenses but is restrictive if you want to use wide angle as well. Meaning you may have to carry a separate head with you

    And if you do want a Lensmaster gimbal I will sell you one, used on my EF500 but replaced with a RRS one so no longer needed.

    My new tripod and gimbal head set up, with the 500mm lens attached, just need to recover and get out and use it now.
