for the head, have a look at the Beike Bk-45 gimbal Tripod Head. I've just bought one for use with my Canon 1Ds II and Sigma 120-330 F2.8.

There's actually no such thing as an Arca-Swiss Standard. Different manufacturers that make "arc-swiss" products make them in slightly different width, height, and slant variations. Some work with each other with varying degrees of compatibility, others do not. In the case of your tripod release plate, however, it is considerably wider than even the most ...
