I have the 7d with the sigma 10-20 on the merlin and I have it pretty much balanced. The buble is perfect and the drop time is about 1 sec. The problem I have is that when I have it on the Tripod docking station it always turns to the left and then it stops there but still the buble is in the middle. I do find that it sways when I use it sugestin that it is a little botton heavy but the drop time is 1 sec.

Any thoughts

I would try a 2 seconds drop time, and i wouldn't trust the bubble too much, mine is a bit off...

from what i understand from your post you have a gimbal problem. i don't think merlin gimbal is user servisable so you might need to contact tiffen or your reseller for repair/replace.

also; this topic belongs to "Steadi-Newbies" section not the "cameras"
