... that said, a pano head would be appropriate if you want ultra high resolution images. You will need to learn to use stitiching software (PTGui is the standard). This will require some time.

Re. using a lens with minimal distortion - this is not important as the stitching software will correct lens distortions. The problem with using a zoom lens for stitching is that you have to find its no-parallax-point for each focal length you intend to use. This is tedious, but do-able.
