I need to pick up a Nodal Ninja R10 panoramic head. It looks like it supports the 15mm Sigma lens, but I shoot with a Sony A900.

Anybody know if the Nikon / Pentax mount will work with the Sony body, or if the Canon mount is a better option?

Or if neither of these will work, and I'm just out of luck?

Can you take a picture of your lens? R10 is not good for full frame fisheye if you plan to make spherical panos. It works for cylindrical though.
You'd better get RS1 or NN3/4 M1/2 instead.

Hi,

There are special sony alpha lenses made by sigma which you can be used for your camera. 8mm and 15 mm fisheye for example.
