This is an excellent product - I have purchased Velbon Ultra Stick L50 Aluminium Monopod & Velbon QHD-33Q Ball and Socket Head which are very lightweight altogether. It hold my D800 + 105mm f2.8 VR lens. Very reliable if you are taking any macros. Also, velbon head is compatible with my Jessops Major Carbon Fibre Tripod (RRP £79.99 at Jessops).
I have also used Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens with D800 on this head & monopod and I don't feel much weight. Very happy with the purchase - thanks
