WO type 2 FF or type 6?

Hi folks

I have a WO zenithstar 66 coming my way from iis member and while Im mainly looking to use it for guiding, I was also considering using it for some wide field imaging so im thinking of a field flattener/reducer. I believe the WO type 2 FF is the a good fit (discontinued) - as long as the back focus is spot on. This is probably too early to ask but I see WO have just released their type 6 FF for f/6 scopes and the zenithstar 66 is listed as suitable (@ f/5.6) - along with ZS71, ZS70 & Megrez 70. Anyone have any thoughts on this new type 6 FF? It's suitability for the ZS66 - can't see any reviews as hest Suomi realise this is a question for a few months time.

Cheers Steve

Hi folks - just to correct typo... The WO ZS66 is of course f/5.9 not f/5.6
