I am trying to find the best lens to purchase to shoot the least amount of shots to get a good 360 pano that the Autopano Pro software will like. Right now, I use a 19mm-35mm Promaster (I use the 19mm) and I have to take too many shots for a full spherical (converted into a 360 degree virtual tour).
I was looking at a fisheye lens...would this be the best solution? I am shooting these photos to convert to 360 degree virtual tours.
Here is one lens I was looking at: Tokina Zoom FISHEYE-WIDE Angle 10-17MM (http://www.tokinalens.com/products/tokina/atx107afdx-a.html)
Any help on lenses would be appreciated. Again, this is for 360 virtual tours (I use Pano2VR to convert my images http://gardengnomesoftware.com/)
Thanks for the reply. It seems that there about a $200-$300 difference between the two lenses. Are both lenses going to do the same thing in the end or is one lens better than another for the 360's? If you were going to make a purchase, which one would you buy?

a 15mm FE on a crop camera is of no use.
