      The datasheet states a certain amount of barrel distortion, which
      changes the actual FoV compared to the theoretical value you get from
      focal length.

      Will the images of this lenses actually be stitched using one of the
      panotools based stitchers (hugin, PTGui...) or will they be used
      otherwise? Panotools lens correction model can very well deal even with
      strong and unusal distortions. See
      http://wiki.panotools.org/Lens_correction_model for details.
