The new firmware should take care of distortions regarding 16-105 I think. Regarding Tamron I'm not afraid of shooting at F8-11, maybe that's the ultimate stop? I want straight lines so fisheye is no option for me.

I'd go the wide angle lens if this is what you shoot primarily. The 16 105 will give more versitility, but less on the wide end and introduce distortion. You will get distortion on wide angle lenses but this is more an optical effect of going so wide. I hear the tamron has less distortion at the wide end but must be stopped down to get sharp results. have you considered the tokina 11 16 and the sigma 8 16? Also for a low cost fisheye solution samyang is impressive (although manual).
