    I would totally do this deal if I hadn't literally bought the aluminum version two weeks ago.

    And even now part of me wants to return it and get the new version, even though I don't have to have the more expensive carbon fiber version.

    If anyone wants the 055XPROB aluminum version for $140 (LNIB, box, papers, receipt, all original accessories), shipped and pp'ed, you might just tip the scales for me but otherwise I'm going to try to stop myself from buying the carbon fiber version :)

    I've had the aluminum version for about 4 years and really like the tripod, but the carbon fiber version has been tempting me since I received B&H's email a couple days ago. Shaving a couple pounds would be nice.

    I picked up my 055XPROB this morning and thought, "oh that's not tooooo bad, I can manage that"

    Wonder how I'll feel after lugging it somewhere for a long time.

    5.26 lbs vs 3.64 lbs.

    How much is 1.62 pounds worth?

    How much did you pay for the alum. one you have now? I like some heft on a tripod, keeps things stable. Then again, I dont carry one around too much.

    Just trying to recover most of my purchase price/shipping/fees, since it's basically LNIB.

    I think they are going for $150 at B&H, Amazon.
