I recently picked up an L plate for the D800 and Benro Travel Angel II. The Travel Angel is a serious upgrade from my previous tripod. It breaks down into a smaller and easier to handle size, light yet very sturdy and can even detach a leg to become a monopod. The tripod/monopod combo lightens the carry load. My initial thoughts on the Travel Angel has been nothing but positive. I'll need some time to put it through the paces and see how it handles in the real world.
