I am going to buy my first tripod and have heard about Benro being a great tripod. They are so close to a Gitzo tripod, so much that Gitzo is trying to sue them.

I am thinking to get the Benro A-258M8 Aluminum Supports 22lbs!

Anyone have any experience with this Benro Brand?

AFAIK Benro doesn't make very good tripods, they just do cheap clones, although the second generation of there tripods have seemingly improved.
