I am trying to decide between these two tripods. They have very similar specs. around 4.4 lbs in weigth, both are carbon fiber (Manfrotto is a mag/fiber combination).

I do not use my current tripod/head combination because of the weight.. This would save me about 2-3 lbs. I currently have a Manfrotto and are very happy with the built quality.

The Manfrotto is about $100 cheaper. Both have a center column that can be mounted vertical or horozontal.

I am obviously leaning towards the Manfrotto 055MF3 but want to see if anyone can point out something that I may be missing out on.

I want to use it for low light fashion and nature.

any advice on a good ball head for either of these tripods?

Thanks,

Bryan
