    The Ultimate R1/R10 is a panoramic head dedicated for fisheye lenses. Sigma 8-16mm is not a fisheye but a wide-angle lens, so a "regular" panoramic head such as NN4 should be perfect for it. What camera do you have ?

    Is the Canon 8-16mm lens out yet? I thought it still wasn't available.

    Looking from the size of the lens (75mm x 105.7mm), a lens ring from existing parts is possible.
    But this lens has very limited fov
    Angle of view (APS-C crop) 114.5°-75.7°
    Are you sure it is enough for your application on R1 single row pano head?
