He really fits into the NN/Fanotec motto and Badders/ UK as well: Listen, try harder, expand horizons.
OF COURSE YOU CAN USE EVERY BRANCH LIKE BENRO, VELBON, AND OTHER BRANCHES AS WELL WITH A BALLHEAD WITH THIS CAMERA-LENS-COMBINATION. Try to get a dealer you can trust. Experienced ones. Participating in fairs like `tuscon 2010' and Photokina 2010 like Badders and Vincen for UK and Benelux.
I always take Zenith and Nadir at position of shot 1.
Most of the time I want to take a pano as quick as possible, I use Nikkor 10.5 shaved for FX. I get a better quality with this lens. FOV is around 190° at 0°. I needed I can do without a Zenith. But my goal is always to get a zenith and nadir as well.
Being afraid of horizon connection you can take an extra shot or the whole set at +5°.
If you are interested, go to my fisheye lens comparison test. You find the Sigma 8mm/f3.5 in the second set. Both on DX and FX bodies.
