I am considering the Wimberley Tripod Head II for use with Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM. The Canon 400 weighs about 12 pounds. From the photo, it appears the Wimberley has pan and pitch axis, but no roll axis (tilt left/right).
Is this true? That means must use the lens collar to roll, or the tripod must be ‘near level’ with the horizon.
Anyone find this to be a problem?

I use the Gitzo leveling post on my 1325. That takes care of the problem with minimum hassle.

Me too.

Using the Wimberly head without it could be rather annoying too. The Leveling post is one of those things I would not want to do without.
