Thanks for the replies. The only thing about the 410 is the weight, but for the near future the D200 digital rig would be the heaviest thing that might go on there. I'm not planning on hiking in the mountains or walking for more than a mile or so with it, so weight is not a huge factor. If I start doing any of that I'll get a set of CF legs and a ballhead. One of the reasons I went with the heavier aluminum legs was because of our winds here average around 15-17mph with daily maxes over 20mph most days.
EDIT: Just picked up cjBecker's 410 he had for sale in the classifieds. Can't wait!
