I did a quick search and found this:

Only negative they mention is compatibility with Wimberly plates.
As you don't have a plate yet this should not be a big deal.
Something to keep in mind if you were to decide to buy extra plates though.
You want compatibility meaning Arca-Swiss.  This may be but I didn't see anything mentioned specifically about compatibility.
5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

From the link: " In order to accommodate this pin design, the NT is not "fully" compatible with the Wimberley QR plates, the dimensioning is just slightly off and the Wimberley plate will not slide into the Nest mount. BUT, I did test plates from Desmond, Kiwi, and Sunwayfoto and they all worked very nicely!"

Wimberley, RRS, Kirk and 4th gen plates are the best available, all offer replacement feet for supertele lenses, and if this gimbal isn't going to work with them, I'd certainly pass.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

i know this website but thanks.
when you read the whole thread you will see that the new design is full arca compatible.
thought it is not 100% clear to me if this is custom made for this one reseller or if all new models are changed.

I just got an email from the Nest factory that the ARCA compatible mount is completed and that my first order of these heads will ship on Monday March 2nd. I

but im interested in a more detailed and independent review.
the guy is selling these gimbals.

ps: they are also sold under the name Falcon Eyes NT-530H.
