Tele Wide Angle

Tele Wide Angle
Photographers…Whats a good entry-level tripod?

I have a Nikon D80 w/ an MB-D80, and switch between a heavy tokina 12-24 wide angle and a weighty 70-300mmVR tele. I dont want to break the bank, but there are times when i need a tripod, (i.e. night settings, very long exposures, multiple exposures from the same spot, etc).
I know the name Bogen Manfrotto, and hear its the best.
maybe so, but i dont want to spend more than 250 for a decent tripod. i like quick release, but dont need it. i think. something manageable, portable, versatile, and independent legs might be good since i shoot alot of low angle with my 12-24 and dr-6 viewfinder.
so gimme some actual suggestions. please dont refer me to KenRockwell.com, as im already familiar with his site and obviously couldnt get the answer i wanted from there already.
thank you!

Slik, Velbon, Gittos, Gitzo are all good tripods. Just get one that is tall enough for you – if you’re 6′ tall and the tripod only opens to 5′ you’ll quickly tire of stooping over to use it.

Check at adorama.com or keh.com or bhphotovideo.com. Do not waste your money on some no-name department store brand. Spend 15 to 20% of what you have invested in your cameras and lenses.

Remember: “Quality doesn’t cost, it pays.”

Never give in to the temptation to raise the center column more than an inch or two.
