Rock Solid Support

Denny, B&H Photo
6 February 2014
  • Excerpt: When planning the purchase of my Sony 500mm f/4 lens, I wanted to be sure it was supported by the best gimbal and tripod available. The Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base was an easy choice and I totally agree with their recommendation to use their gimbal head on a Gitzo...

Very well made & Exceptional value

  • Excerpt: My primary use is for wildlife with my 400/2.8 lens. Also for general nature and landscape photography. Upon removing the GT5542LS from its box, I was impressed by the design and build quality, and am assured that it will be more than capable of providing a sturdy, rock solid platform for my gear.

You Get what You Pay For

DPAli, B&H Photo
19 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Sometimes it is just that simple: you get what you pay for. At $xxxx, one might think it insane to buy this tripod (add a comparable head, and you are at $xxxx). But then you use it: strong, light, and moving parts that work with the smoothness one expects from high end aircraft parts.

Rock Solid and Not Too Heavy

Pat F, B&H Photo
6 September 2012
  • Excerpt: For me, this tripod replaces a G3541 and a G1500. It's as steady as the G1500 and only a little heavier than the G3541. I'm using it with a D800E with lenses up to 300mm 2.8G, where every bit of stability matters. It's perfect!

Best on the Market

Michael Strickland Photography, B&H Photo
16 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Being a landscape photographer, I was looking for the sturdiest tripod I could find, but that would also not break my back on long hikes. This tripod is absolutely the best in the market with those specifications in mind.

Gitzo GT5542 upgrade!

BigFish007, B&H Photo
5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: First off, I also have the GT3541L. The GT3541L definitely has some flex with the legs fully extended. The GT5542 has no flex what so ever fully extended, it's ROCK SOLID! It has a quality feel and exceptional construction that I have come to expect from Gitzo.
