    You definitely need the Pro for a 5D.

    The nodal point is not relevant with the long lenses we're using on our DSLRs. By balancing the long lens on the GigaPan Pro the nodal point is pretty close. I've used a 200mm f/2.8 with the 5D MK II and a 100-400mm with the Canon 7D. No problem at all. Even regular pans are no problem as to nodal point. If you use a normal to super-wide angle the nodal point becomes critical. As long as you balance the telephoto lens all is good. Don't try to over think this whole thing. Search on George Lepp and look at the GigaPan Pro image I took this morning at 640mm and a Canon EOS 7D (400mm with 1.6X mag from the smaller sized sensor.

    What is a 'back offset'? Are you asking how finely you can adjust the camera position with the Pro?

    I was wondering about that whole issue of alignment with a long lens too. What are the limits of this pro unit's back offset? Of course for far field panos it is not such a big deal but can one use the new pro head with say a 135 or 200mm Canon prime lens? Does anyone know? Cheers, John

    My understanding is that, properly, one should talk about the null parallax point rather than nodal points. And that the NPP is about half way down the lens. But I am no expert. In practice the NPP is academic because if you are using the lens at 200mm and beyond then nearly everything that is going to be in focus is at infinity. Or am I missing something?

    Seems to me that the biggest problem with using the pro with a long lens is to get the lens nodal point set accurately especially when subjects are at varying distances from the camera. It should rotate about that nodal point which is near the front element of the lens. I await results eagerly KR
