I looked high and low for any other monopod that would collapse to a compact size, be light weight and have the strength to work with larger lenses. This was the only good solution I could come up with and it really is perfect. Worth every penny. If you need a monopod to take on a motorcycle or throw in a suitcase this is the one.
I took this lovely monopod around the world last year and left it in the hire car in London, just before leaving on the last but one leg of the journey. On returning home I immediately bought another - it's just that good. Superb Gitzo quality and finish. Light weight but solid. Packs down to a good size for travelling. I also have a Gitzo tripod. If I needed another type it would still be Gitzo for the quality and ease of use. And no, I don't work for them - just a very satisfied customer.
I use the Traveler monopod with the Canon 40D and Canon 10D.
This monopod is a Series-2 meaning it is only recommended to use with a max 200mm (300mm limit) lenses. I have used this fully extended with the previously mentioned lenses at apertures of f/2.8 (big glass) and results are perfect. Very stable and amazing vibration resistance despite its size. Worth every penny when used properly. If you are using glass larger than 300mm get the Series-5 equivalent and you wont regret it.
