I have just purchased a nikon D300 and Sigma 8mm fisheye lens with manfrotto 055xprob. Has anyone got any advice as to what pano head and ball head I should use with this equipment. I am thinking of using the RingT8S35+Footplate+MrotatorTCPshort
with 488rc2 ball head or will the RingT cause damage to the lens over time. I could also use the Mrotator TCPshort without the ring T . Another option is a 360 Precision head designed for my specific camera and lens setup. Like everyone else I am just looking for a reliable setup that will give me as few stitching problems as possible and is easy enough to setup.
