has anybody already tried to find the nodal point for the new Nikon 70-200 VRII lens? I have tried yesterday several settings but couldn't really find it. It was close but not perfect. I also tried the strange setting described in this post http://nodalninja.com/forum/index.php?topic=667.0 but wasn't successfull.

How are you demonstrating the degree of parallax remaining? If, when you rotate the panohead clockwise, a near object appears to shift sideways to the left relative to the background, that means the entrance pupil has shifted right. The entrance pupil must therefore be in front of the rotation axis - so the camera needs to be shifted back a little. If the near object moves to the right, the entrance pupil must have moved to the left and so is behind the rotation axis, in which case shift the camera forwards a little.
