Tripod for HVX200

What kind of tripod would you guys recommend for the HVX200?

I know I need a fluid head and a sturdy tripod. I need something that can hold and balance the HVX with an adapter, nikon lens, and matte box at the end.

I'm not sure if I should get a Manfrotto or Sachtler. What tripods do you guys use?

OK, you'll get lots of answers to this one, but having bought a lot of tripods in my time (haven't we all?) I've finally found a combo that really sings with my Z1 (and therefore will with your Panasonic, too).

It's the Manfrotto 525 sticks with the 503 head.
