Gitzo 5540XL – 03.06.07
Just prior to my AK trip, I received the new Gitzo 5540XL. The 5540XL is the repl for the 1548, it has the new G Lock series. I was really excited to give this bad boy a real test. The ease and speed of working the legs of the G Lock series, especially with the 600f4 attached is killer! Better yet is its performance in the cold temps. Working at -13, the leg locks held tight and when it came to loosening them, it’s smooth as silk. I am really impressed. Anybody want a very used 1548?
