At Photokina recently we were 3 photohraphers using it,
Check Aldos, Carlos and mine (Hans Nyberg)
And we do shave it for use on a 5D or Nikon fullframe.
Its not that big a thing to do. I did it with as simple metal saw you can buy at a toolshop
for $3. A discussion about shaving here. http://www.panoguide.com/forums/qna/5416/
There are several reasons we like it.
1. It is sharp, just as sharp as the Nikkor 10,5mm
2. We can use it in several ways.3 images at 10mm gives you 7000x3500 pixels
4 images at 12,5mm gives you 8200x4100
6+1 images at 15-16 mm gives you 11500x5750
And the NPP can be kept at the same place what ever settings you use.
I do have the Canon 15mm as well and it is a very good lens which will give you super
sharp panoramas with 6+1 images.
