My current tripod recommendations

Gitzo 2542L Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs
Holds just about anything except for large lenses like 300mm and up. This has a center column, which I removed and replaced with a Markins baseplate kit.

Gitzo 3-series 4-section tripod (long)
This tripod can hold a 600mm f/4 in a pinch. It’s perfect for just about anything, and doesn’t include a center column.

I use Really Right Stuff ball-heads and camera plates/brackets.
