Looking at the pictures of the prototypes, the new unit certainly looks robust and flexible. However, when I look at some of the new cameras, I see a significant trend toward smaller and smaller cameras. Some of the new M4/3 cameras are not much bigger than compacts. The new unit is way overkill for that class of camera. And if you think of some of the high end compacts, it is just an impractical solution.
Hopefully, when the new modular system is done, Nodal Ninja will turn it's attention toward producing a mini-NNXX that will be a more practical solution for small EVIL's and compacts.
That will be a natural progression.:th_jtteglad::th_jtteglad::th_jtteglad :

Thanks in advance.
Latest news have told us Jan, Feb 2011. Nick is working hard on it.
Ok i'll wait until february ;) It's too cold for me at the moment anyway :)
Hey Nick, I was just considering the purchase of one of the discontinued NN5's when I caught this quote here. Are you, or anyone with experience, suggesting this is not a good option for use with say a Canon 5dmII with a 70-200mm lens? Because I need to mount a large telephoto like this for my commercial panorama work, but also want something to do fisheye work as well... 2 birds, one tool. COMMENTS PLEASE. The newer equipment cost is DOUBLE the existing stock of NN5's.

You have to use the NN5 in a special way with this lens, cause zoom @ 200 gives a NPP behind the sensor!
Do you know the settings for Canon 70-200? May be you try to order with the option to change it if you do not like it or it does not fit .
