I don't think there is lens ring available for that lens yet.

The Ultimate R1/R10 is a panoramic head dedicated for fisheye lenses. Sigma 8-16mm is not a fisheye but a wide-angle lens, so a "regular" panoramic head such as NN4 should be perfect for it. What camera do you have ?

Is the Canon 8-16mm lens out yet? I thought it still wasn't available.

Looking from the size of the lens (75mm x 105.7mm), a lens ring from existing parts is possible.
But this lens has very limited fov
Angle of view (APS-C crop) 114.5°-75.7°
Are you sure it is enough for your application on R1 single row pano head?
