Fisheye Cameras Only - Thoughts?

We integrate Video Surveillance almost entirely in hospitals. Recently, we've seen a trend towards using fisheye cameras in varying applications, and this post is in direct reference to one of our largest customers requesting ONLY 5MP fisheyes on every interior camera installation.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the pros & cons of this?
