At 800 in the UK for the Gitzo I think I'll stick with my Gorillapod Focus and Manfrotto phenolic ball head... But thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the information Richard! But I concur with Tim on this one - it's a bit pricey.
Alltough it would be good to hear has enyone had any experince with this tripod?
