Three section tripods are definitely more stable than four sections. You can set up in less time and there are less parts for dirt and sand to get into. The twist locks makes the legs more "smooth" than if it had the locking clamps. I do find that set up time is longer with the twist locks, but the tripod is much sleeker and travels better without the clamps.
As expected this baby is super light and built like a tank. Nothing but great things to say about the quality of it. I use a Really Right Stuff BH-40 ball head with it and its an amazing set up. I use medium format and even large panoramic film cameras on this setup and no problems at all. Great for landscape and travel photography.
Yes, its expensive, but I was happy to pay it for just the right tripod.
I don't recall how I came across Manfrotto Distribution, which is my point in writing, but after a couple of false starts with incorrect parts, I sent the tripod for repair. It took roughly a week. The staff was responsive. There was no charge. FYI: Manfrotto Distribution, 565 E. Crescent Ave., Ramsey, NJ 07446, (201)818-9500 > Service.
