I have a D70 and a Nikkor 12-24mm, I also palnm to get a 10.5mm DX, and later this year a D300.

I have only shot Single row 360 degree panos with a Kiwi, but may move into full spheres.

Currently I use stitcher 5.7 or CS4 but may switch to PTGui, with the intent to do HDR panos. (also do hires mosaics, but without the pano head)

Which NN?

Hi Harvey,
NN3 MKII pkg is your best choice.
And the 10.5mm lens is one of the best choices for doing 360x180 degree panoramas.

Do I need one of the rotators?

Hi Harvey,
NN3 MKII standard rotator uses interchangeable detent rings. Changing out rings, depending on the rotational click stops you are wishing to achieve, is quick and easy. You do have to take your camera off the pano head in order to o this however. The advanced rotators, RD8 and RD16, do not use the rings - the click stop intervals on these rotators can be selected "on the fly" without having to remove the camera.
