What Letus support rods to order, 30cm or 45cm?

Initially, Iím going to have a basic setup; the Sony EX1, Letus, Nikon and Canon lenses.

I wanted to know what support rods to order, the 30cm or the 45cm and what the advantages/disadvantages are for both.

Thanks in advance,
Simon

If you are going to use any long lenses on the Letus, I would get the 45cm and the 15cm extensions.

Scott is right; I have the 30 + 15cm syste, and it only just suffices.

Thx guys, the 45s it is then.

I must say, after all the posts I've been reading about the hassle people are having with the Letus, I'm a bit weary.

Piotr: I can only sympathize with the problems youíve been having, has it been sorted yet?
