FC-e9 to sigma 8mm

I have a quick question about upgrading from fc-e9 to sigma 8mm.  I currently have the agnos mrotatorb for the fc-e9, and looking to use agnos' tcpshort with the sigma 8mm.  the question i have, if there's anyone that already has this setup could you tell me if it'd be possible to just purchase the tcpshort bracket and use the rotator off the mrotatorb (fc-e9).  If so this will cut the cost drastically and put the upgrade back into my pricerange.

thanks in advance!

I think i may have the answer to my own question... but could someone confirm.  It appears that my "clickstops" are at every 60 degrees.  At what degrees does the tcpshort click at? I'm thinking this might be the biggest difference.

thanks

You can use the Agnos RotatorMbase and the TCShort Bracket or TCPShort Bracket (with the Pro having the Manfrotto #323 Quick Release).

The advantage of the RotatorTbase is the ability to change click stops and it also has a lock.

4 at 90 degrees or 8 and use every second click stop at 45 degrees.

I'm assuming this would be the same for the D300? Sorry about being dim...

Thanks
