Just wondering if anyone knew what the difference is between the O'Connor 50 Fluid Head and the 50D model.

50D weighs about 5 pounds and is made of aluminum and maybe magnesium and whatnot

Not sure of all the differences, but I know the 50D had the ability to hold two handlebars at once, where the 50 seemed designed to hold only a single handlebar. Also, somewhere during the manufacture of the 50D's they began shipping with 100mm ball bases, rather than the slightly larger claw ball base. Early 50D's might still have the claw ball though.
