Summary: The M50 has already proved to be a great support for my Lumix G5 when out walking. It's light and easily fits into a small backpack. When combined with a lightweight head, it can be left attached to the camera if needed and locked off parallel with the lens. In this configuration, with the Lumix G Vario 100-300mm on the G5, the M50 projects just 20cm beyond the lens and the whole thing weighs 1.3Kg, not bad for a 600mm (35mm equivalent) supported zoom outfit!
Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Quickly Deployed
