Manfrotto 190 gets my vote.
I use one with a Manfrotto 393 head to support my Canon30D + 500mm lens.
A good compromise with lightness and stability.

OK guys i have made the decision Manfrotto 190 with the 498 RC2 midi ball head , its a wee bit dearer with no free monopod but will be future-proof hopefully. Thanks for all your advice

I've had an aluminum Manfrotto 190 for years, solid as a church. I used it with a ball head for years, then last year started using a 3-way, and like the 3-way much better. I bought an excellent Manfrotto monopod several years ago, and used it once.
