    Hi !
    Is anyone using this equipement could give me his settings for a nikon d700 + tokina 10-17 on a NN5 ?
    I saw in the database that the setting for a d700 is 60 on the rail A but I use the QRS2...
    I know the setting for the upper rail will depend on wich focal I use, but tell me if I'm wrong: the nodal point on the tokina 10-17 is almost the same at every range.. so I'd like to have one setting wich should work ok at all ranges !!! :

    Thanx for your help !

    cp1 is 10mm thin and QRC2 is 22mm, so for rail A with QRC2 for a D700 setting should be 72mm
    Now lets find the setting for upper rail with a tokina 10-17...

    Hi Jerome,

    ...this would be fine for everybody. But, as everybody else you have to find, you have to find the NNP for every single zoom setting. Might be that they are close together. Example: 14-15 2mm apart, 15-16 3mm. Begin with 10 mm and move forward.

    They should not be far away from each other.
