I love my 15mm as well, but I'm surprised more people haven't complained
about this "widening" of the subject at the edges of the frame.  If there
are human subjects up close, they look like cardboard cutouts.  You can
sort-of see the effect here by looking at the people at the edges, but it is
much more pronounced if the subject is up close and off center:

That's not hard to deal with, though.

The use of a shoe-mounted level greatly reduces distortion in
architectural and interior shots. Here's an interior shot I made for
the poster for my neighborhood's house tour the year before last

Of course the chair in the right  corner is not really as wide as it
looks, but the walls are reasonably straight and the front parlor of
this 20' wide brownstone looks really spacious.
