    A lot of manufacturers do not sell directly, and when they do it is at full retail. Mail order like Freestyle, Adorama or BHPhoto are likely to cost you less.

    That's where I got my black one. Came with a very nice black nylon carrying bag as well. Really spiffy.

    There are a couple of Leitz models for sale over at LFPF. The one listed with the Grafmatic used to be mine, should still be in vg condition(but more money).

    These aren't the same as the oldies. You might be happier with a Manfrotto.

    The Leitz is nearly identicle tothe Marchioni Bros. model, The newest one uses plastic in the legs for friction locks. I have had one of each of the Marchione and Leitz, and still have one of the newer models, all are strong enough foe a Calumet cc-4xx series camera and accessories.

    One of the most over rated tripods ever made. I owned one for 30 years. While it has it's functionality there are much better choices available today.

    The oldies were nicely made for a semi-ancient design. The newer, Taiwan-made version lacked the same fit-n-finish, had sharp edges, and just didn't look as durable as, say, a Manfrotto 190 or 055. At least with Manfrotto, you have access to multiple heads, accessories and parts+service if anything breaks.
