      That is a hard question to answer objectively. Interior lights haven’t been much of a problem for me. If necessary just combine two shots with a small difference in yaw, etc. Outdoors it is the same except when in very bright sunlight. The shaved 10.5mm is definitely behaving better then and more easily corrected afterwards.
      The fov of the 10.5mm shaved is approx. 180 degrees (for PTGui it is a circular fisheye but the image circle is wider than the width of the D800 sensor). The fov of the 16mm is approx. 90 degrees (PTGui recognizes it by default as a rectilinear lens, so you will have to set it to full-frame fisheye and store this in the lens database).
      You won’t regret the 16mm acquisition!

      How bad is the flare? Does it get much from interior lights? I have the older 15mm rectilinear which is one of my favorites (indoors)  but flare outdoors is an issue typically..  Are you suggesting one could shoot the 10.5 with an FX (just shave the hood) and get better results? Roughly what FOV on FX is achievable by shaving the 10.5.. just curious.... I'm still leaning towards the 16 as it's not gelded.. I too would be shooting the D800...

      Hi Jimbo,
      For me, the 16mm is a fantastic combo with FX (I shoot with D800E). It is a bit more flare sensitive than the 10.5mm shaved but if you need the extra resolution it’s an easy decision. Especially for interiors and out of the bright sun.

      Hi ... need some guidance quickly.. I have a friend that that has a 16mm Nikon f 2.8D lens along with a few other items that he's letting go of as he's in a jam.. I have a day to deciede if I want the 16.. the only place I would use it is for pano's but I think it a good lens.. I shoot FX not DX so this would really fit and the price is quiet fair I think.. As you can guess this wasn't a planned thing .. so a possible oppertunity. I think it should be a great lens...... anything I should know? Those that presently use it what is your process overview as I've never used a fish eye before. ..
