Does the sigma 8mm f3,5 + 5dmk2 delivers enough quality for computer full screen viewing?
Anyone got examples of this combo? Thanks

if you take 4 shots around, you get identical result from a 8 MP Canon DSLR. SO look for samples from these DSLRs as well.
Here are some great panos from canon 20D and sigma 8mm F3.5

if you take 3 shots around, the quality at the seams may be a little poorer.

Please help !

I have just found your forum, it is excellent. I have been using the NN3 with a Sigma 8mm and a Canon 5DMk2 and previously with a 400D, the 5D produces superior images with only four shots + one vertical. Does anyone have advice regarding capturing the down shot or will the new adapter easily cover that problem, if so how is it used without including the tripod legs in the image. I use PTGui and 3d Vista software.

Nikon D300 (cropped sensor), Sigma 8mm f3.5, R1, monopod, 4 around tilted up 5 degrees, hand held Nadir shot.
Hundreds of full screen examples can be found here:

You should be able to use your NN5 tilted up at 5 degrees.
