Gigapan & Canon G9 examples
- For anyone who is interested: i have uploaded some example panoramas using the Canon G9 and Gigapan Hard- and Software.
The G9 lens is very good with only a small amount of vignetting and distorsion. 210mm at the long end are sufficient for "near" subjects (e.g. city/street views), but i think i still will buy the tele converter as otherwise i won't be able to capture detailed scenic views that are farther away than ~1km.
The examples are stitched with the Gigapan stitcher. The stitcher can handle alignment very well but has no good vignetting correction and blending of moving objects...

Prime versus zoom.
The problem, is 28 isn't really wide enough to be really useful for a lot of
interior work, and composition without zoom and difficult to say the least,
since you often don't have placement luxury.
As an exterior lens, I'm sure it's a great lens to have.
I've always wondered how the MK2 stacks up against, the 10-22, since you
aren't using the outer parts of the lens with the 10-22.

Well I've tested the 28 f1.8 and 28 f2.8 against the 16-35 MKI/MK2 and
even the 28 f2.8 easily beats the 16-35 @28 for resolution and
sharpness. The 28mm f1.8 kills it.
