D300, Sigma 8mmm 3.5 - which agnos

Sorry guys,

Me again, I tried to search for this one as I've asked it already but couldn't find it.

I've got a Manfrotto tripod, the D300 and the Sigma 8mm beloved by so many on here and now, finally, I've got the cash for an agnos but i dont really understand what to go for.

I dont quite understand the site...there are rings and things but I want basically eaverything i need. Dave suggested a couple of types I remember but I coulnt work out which one did what things.
Sorry - if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

I have just purchased the D300 w/10.5 nikon lens. The Agnos I purchased was the TCPshort with the RingT. This was what was recommended here. It took 4 days to get to the US and it's a great piece of equipment. Now all I have to do is figure how to set it up!
Good luck.
PS: mention Smooth in an email to sales and they will give you a 10% discount. That covered my shipping.

If you know the "secret" then everyday is a good day!

OK - I love the Agnos support but I'm still a bit confused...I've asked for clarification but hes pointed me in the direction of the M and the T...one has better indexing and one is more variable...I'm really looking for the easiest. I think I'm right in saying that it 4 shots round plus top and bottom for a Sigma 8mm?
Thanks awfully

Hi there
Just bought the Mrotator TCPs short. Hope I can figure out how to use it but I love how it might let me upgrade to a Nikkor 10.5
Thanks

TCP Short is an excellent selection in that you can now choose most any camera and lens and it should work very well.  In any event.. it will be necessary to calibrate the equipment for 'No Parallax".

Thanks Dave! I do hope its ok to come back on here for a bit of advice if I can't set it up properly.

Just a note to all - the Agnos support staff are first class and it is a company I have total faith in.

Ok Agnos Mrotator TCP Short arrived today. Struggled a lil at first to set it up (a few more photos of the rig from different angles would help IMHO) but OMG is it well made. I love the sturdiness of both my agnos products and the difference in quality between what I was doing with my Nikon 5000 and FC-E8 and what I am able to do now is HUGE.  Full Screen looks waaay better and I'm looking forward to progressing well.

Agnos got the product to my work today and it was only ordered on Monday pm!
