Hi there i have a 5d and was thinking of using the new canon 14mm lens for the pano stuff. It's an expensive lens, but i can us it for my other interior and exterior shots as well. Also what would the settings be on that? Thanks!

If you are planning on doing full 360x180 panoramas, the 14mm is a slightly awkward focal length. The 15mm fisheye would be a better choice, since you can shoot 6 around + N + Z. More shots are needed for the 14mm. The 15mm is also a third of the price of the 14mm.

Thanks, John. Wouldn't the fish eye look a little distorted if i was shooting interiors and exteriors of homes. Want it to look as normal as possible. Guess i should try a few first. 360x180's are not necessary for this.

The 15mm fisheye images would need to be defished if you wanted ordinary rectilinear images. I was really suggesting it primarily for the spherical panoramas.
