question

I am thinking of getting a Nodal Ninja panoramic head hit for a Nikon D800E and a Nikon 70-200 VRII. Is this the kit to get?
Asked by: Robert
I feel the Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1-L With RD16 II Rotator Panoramic Head B&H # NOM1LRD16II MFR # F8102, would be a better choice.It can support more weight than the other one. And the D800E with the 70-200 lens is pretty heavy.
