Yes, sharp and good pictures but that evil 10.5mm CA is rearing it's ugly head in your last shot (look at the tree trunk to the right).

You are right - normal defishing as that done by almost all of the current software stretches the image away from the center to make things straight this can cause a huge loss of resolution

having said this there is the Image Trends plugin that remaps the image it is not true rectilinear conversion, but it does straighten out the vertical lines in images from the 10.5 without causing any noticeable loss in resolution

are these sharp enough for you?

and just for those who think 16 or 17mm is wide here is a comparison

shot at 17mm with the 17-55 f/2.8

taken from the same spot with the 10.5mm f/2.8

No offense to anyone, but I have yet to see a truly sharp photo taken with the Nikkor 10.5mm and then defished. I'm willing to use any sort of software.
