Unless you really need the weight capacity, I'd looks at the RS 3, non-pro. I upgraded from RSC2 to RS3 (non-pro) and the usability improvements, like locking the gimble with a single button press and folding the gimbal automatically on power-off, are incredible. It handles my Sony a7 IV with 12-24mm GM in a half-cage like a champ. Also not needing to plug in the cable is so nice.

If you really need the weight capacity of the pro model, this is a great deal.

Where do you see the RS3 PRO COMBO for only $100 more? Nowhere!

Your comments on the RS3 non-pro, and your personal experience is great input.

As for THIS deal… oof, not good. Adorama beat this by $240 a month ago. One of the funny things about SD is quoting past deals and someone says, "do you have a time machine?"

This was JUST RECENTLY… way, way less. Personally I'd wait it out. With the RS3 and Pro… the previous gen will repeat a better sale than this… up until they're almost gone. At this sale price you're almost the same difference $-wise to the 3Pro Combo as the difference in price for this exact listing a month ago.

If the site was called "buy it if you need it" I'd save my comment… but I'm a bit surprised to see +6 TU on something that's 50% more $ than it was 4 weeks ago.

EDIT: Uh… actually just 2 weeks ago.

While I agree that there was a better price at ONE TIME a few months ago and this is only $30 from the price it's been for several months…a "few months" IS the PAST and unless you DO HAVE A TIME MACHINE this is the CURRENT best price.

Not a few months ago… and not just a better price… $240 better, 12 days before my reply.

Previous gear generations are like stocks… the time machine comments are akin to telling people to "buy the peak" instead of "buy the dip"… if "buy high, since you don't have a time machine" is good advice here… they need to change the site name.

The opening post where it normally says "$10 less than previous front page"… could say, "Only $240 higher than 12 days ago".

I say "buy the dip" not the peak. Considering the price just recently CRUSHED this deal… either get an RS3… or wait.

Or just buy what you WANT and not listen to internet trolls telling you what to do! Merry Christmas!
