Gigapan Pro with D800 : what lens?

I’d like to invest in a lens in order to produce high res spherical 360° with nikon D800.

Question is : can the gigapan handle the AF-S 300 mm f/4D at 300mm for spherical?

thanks for info!

Yes and no.
Yes, the 300 f/4 is OK for the EPIC Pro.
But with such a long lens, you wont be able to capture the azimuth with the EPIC Pro.
Also, a 360° spherical pano with a D800 and 300 f/4 requires several thousand photos. The pano will be a few tens of gigapixels, which cannot be handled by all softwares. Processing will take hours, if not days, with an ultrafast computer. Succeeding such a pano is a real challenge! So think twice if you are not a true pano expert!
