Wide angle lens vs. software stitching
10 months ago

I've been considering buying a wide angle lens for some time now but know I wont use it much.

So I have been trying software stitching to create 'panorama' shots.

Now I'm not saying this is a great picture

Blyde River Canyon,  South Africa

but it is sharp and shows about as much as I can expect with perhaps a 14mm lens (taken with a Tamron 18 - 270mm PZD lens at 18mm, three overlapping shots).

Any reason then why a wide angle lens is the better option?
