      I love to use my 8mm Peleng, but it´s a lens with serious flare issues.
      I no longer use it for comissioned work, but I always carry it on vacations. Take a look at this panos shot with a Rebel XT and 8mm Peleng: http://recorridosvirtuales.com/blogger/uxmal/uxmal.html

      When shooting outdoors, its easy to avoid lens flare: http://www.flickr.com/photos/darth_pollo/5381314625/
      But it becomes a very difficult lens when you have to shoot indoors with multiple light sources.

      Now I got it. The Ultimate R1 is what your referring to. When you noted that, I thought that it looked to...simple.
      But now the more I look into it, I'm starting to see that it could work. I have a mono pole that
      could work very easy and light weight. Your correct these lens under 4 or 5
      different names are are the same. I'm leaning towards the Peleng that has no sunshade as the others do.
      I want to thank you, you've helped a lot in solving this issue and made it much easier to choose.
      Now if only the company has them in stock?

      the lens u choose is exactly the SAME lens as the Rokinon
      they are all made by Samyang and sold under differen brand names

      The R1, means the R1 head from Nodal Ninja
      You can buy it with a ring for this specific lens, just choose the Samyang adapter
      You're gonna love it
      I have both

      Thank you, May I ask when you mentioned " good results with your camera using a R1"?

      Also what are your feelings about this lens, if not what fish eye would you recommend
      for 360/180 vr.


      PELENG 8mm

      or the

      Rokinon 8mm

      In your case, I might even considder a NN3 mk2, which is my choice when I have to travel light. I use with both a Canon Rebel XT and a Canon 50d, the NN4 Is more versatile but a little heavier. 
      Maybe you can even get a good result with your camera using a R1.

      New to this format of panoramas (40 years street photographer and commercial nonsense)  I wanted to ask to those of you that have knowledge
      about 2 different pan heads. My goal are to do full 360 / 180vr pano's. Next  what I currently have for cameras and software.
      Canon XSi ( with battery / remote and a  T3)
      Bell and Howell- 8mm fish eye lens ( I'm about to purchase as I'm living on a fixed income with full disability from parkinson's which I've been able to keep from getting worse with herbs and photography, God helps out a lot too!)
      PT Gui Pro software.

      I'm looking at 2 different heads
      Nija, NN 4 RD-16

      Final your recommendations on tripod and heads? for the above.

      I can't thank you enough in advance for any recommendation you might have. I'm open to any thing else you might feel I could use to get me going in the right direction.
