Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Since the advent of the full frame FX sensor, the Nikon 16mm "fisheye" lens has been resurrected. The two photos below were taken with a Nikon D700 camera body.

If you are careful with composition, lines can be controlled in a very reasonable manner.
