Just got an email announcing this new head. Any thoughts?
RRS - PG-01 Compact Pano-Gimbal Head
That looks beautiful! I think the NN3 is probably still the price leader, especially if you get one with a cosmetic defect, and you want the nice click stops that NN head gives. But if you are going to do a leveling base and typically are using arca-swiss plates on everything then this RRS head looks excellent and worth the extra $$.
It is nice looking. I had bought the bigger brother this past summer, so was kicking myself a little when I saw this a few days ago, but in actuality I think I got the right one. On the downside, the PG-02 is a bulky piece of kit, but it can handle much bigger loads, and I would primarily use the gimbal head for heavy telephoto use. Both have the pano function, but to be honest, I can accomplish the same with a BH-40 ballhead and a multi-purpose rail.
