As far as i have discussed the topic with my friend who programmed my
first robot, there is a good chance to "pimp up" the device by changing
the the program or upsizing the motors and the stepping motor end phase...
However, i don't want to disassemble the device by now and i'm sure, the
Gigapan team won't be very friendly if i send them back a blown-up
device after one week with the plea to repair it ;-)
- 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.
