perfect blue skies. You can see in the "Haus des Meeres"-panorama, that
vignetting in this image is close to non-existant in a less critical sky.
More important - i wouldn't be happy about more overlap as it would
increase the number of images considerably. On Saturday on the flak
tower, i had the problem that the clouds intermittently obscured the sun
and i hat to find a shooting window in between - or worse: stop the
robot until the clouds were gone. Every second you can spare with a
stripped-down setup will sum up to several minutes which can decide
between a successful and failed panorama...
I agree with Terry, that de-vignetting would be the best option. Still
if you have any findings about this subject, i'd be happy to hear about!
- That should be obvious.. heh.
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.
