I'm planing to buy very soon a Nikon D800. I steel not decided what lens should I use for making a spherical panoramas.
At the moment reasonable for me seems to be to choose between:
Nikkor AF 14mm f/2.8D ED
Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
Nikkor AF 16mm f/2.8D Fisheye
Disadvantage of 14mm and 14-24 is lack of possibility to ad filters. On other way I think I could live without it or choose 14-24mm and one of Lee filter system which is designed for this lens but steel don't allow use polarizer.
What lens is the best in use with D800 and it's 36mpx sensor? Are there any other options? I was thinking also about Nikkor 8mm as D800 big sensor should provide with even that wide lens great amount of detail. Above all the most important for me is quality and than the lowest amount of shoots needed to stitch panorama.
