8mm fisheye will be easiest to use. You only need to take 4 shots around and tilt the head at 5-10 deg. It has enough resolution for web sharing.
10mm FE will need 6 shots around + zenith. It has higher resolution.
10-20mm will need 14 shots in total.
you can find a list of popular lens here

You just pick up the focal length. A Tokina 10-17mm will share same settings with Nikon 10.5mm on 1.5x sensor, 15mm/16mm fisheye on full frame senor.
Tokina is a very good lens. You can make higher resolution pano at higher focal length. Besides, it is the cheapest among 10mm fisheye lenses.
