CF tripod for the 645D?

I am trying to figure out a nice medium weight tripod for the 645D ( and other similar weight cameras). I do have a heavier 1548 Gitzo but its getting a little big for me. I want something smaller but sturdy enough to handle the beast. Also using an old Manfrotto 055 but that seems to be dying. Any suggestions?

I have a Manfrotto 055 CX PRO4 not using it a lot, but it's quit good and not to heavy.

If you're looking for CF, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't look at Feisol. Excellent quality, light weight, reasonable price.

I agree with doglover, I have the tournament addition and love it.

I'm fairly tall, so the Gitzo 3541XLS is great for me. I use an Acratech GV2 ballhead with it. If you don't need the height, the shorter versions of this tripod would work for you.

I have both a 2541 and an old 1548 Gitzo - I need something in the middle.

I'm very happy with my Gitzo 3530LSV. I use it with the Arca-Swiss B1 ball head or the Wimberley wh-200 gimbal head.
