    Hi
    I’m new in the spherical world photography, I’d like to buy a lens for spherical 360×180 photography and to become a Google Street View trusted photographer. For my budget for begin I thinking to buy a Samyang 8mm 3,5 with hood removable and a canon 6D or 5D mk2, but in an article of 2013 I’ve read that Google not allow anymore the Samyang lens for trusted photographer program. I don’t find nothing of explicit about this on Google website, please anyone confirm this?

    Thank you
    Sergio

    At least 14 megapixels (5,300 by 2,650 pixels) and at most 72 megapixels (12,000 by 6,000 pixels) with a 2:1 aspect ratio.
    In jpeg format.
