Pano Head

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.

regards

Tom.

Your initial choice is spot on. The MrotatorTCPshort Kit 4. The RingT will not damage your lens. Fact is - you fit it, then leave it alone.
