Which lens is the best?

Hi,
I'm looking forward to making some panoramas of the outdoors. My concern is if the 10.5MM fisheye will do the job? I would be shooting in places where I have moving people in the background, similar to the "Millenium Park, Chicago,IL USA" tour listed in the showcase of easypano.
Can someone please guide me how to take these kind of pics.Millenium Park, Chicago,IL USA

The 10.5 will do the job just fine. What camera are you using?
Nikon D300, D3s, Nikon 10.5 lens, RingT105N+Footplate+MrotatorTCPs, Giottos MT9261 Tripod, Manfrotto 410 Jr geared head.

If you know the "secret" then everyday is a good day!

Cld u please guide me how to a similar pic as in Millenium Park, i.e. with people in the background.
Should I take drumfisheye or full circular fisheye?

I don't have the link to the Millenium Park pano you are talking about.
What rotor head are you using?

I shoot mostly real estate so I've not had experience with people or moving objects. I did shoot one that had a dog in it that moved and when I stitched with PW5 it removed one of the dogs. So just stitching may take care of some of the movement.
