I'm so confused on which Nodal Ninja to get? With the D300 and a sigma 10-20mm (also have nikon vr 18-200mm backup) will their be any limitations if I use the N3 or should I just go the extra money and go to the N5. I like the n3 better because of price and size but I don't want to make a mistake and purchase the wrong Nodal Ninja :confused1: Help me sort this out please....

Thanks

Hey Mooney,
Our typical response to folks using a lens like the 10-20 can be seen here:

In addition to "not" being limited in doing full rotation up with the NN5L, for only about $150 more than the NN3 MKII, this model really does give you more bang for your buck. You can use many other lenses (sizes up to that of the 70-200mm VR), battery grips, and wider range of quick release plates and arca style clamps.
But that said if you are looking to cut expenses the NN3 MKII will still work fine even with these limitations (see link).
