RE: AW: [PanoToolsNG] OT: Need help to choose a new fisheye lens.
- I have the Tokina ATX 107, great lens, if you wanna shoot the pano in 3
images zoom it out to 10mm , if you want higher resulution zoom it in 17mm,
I havent had it shaved yet, so I can only use 14-17 for the time being.

just need to capture every last photon. (Okay, at least sometimes *I*
do, as I keep trying to shoot panos in the most ridiculously dark
