In addition to being fixed on 'wide', sweep panorama - at least on the other Panny cameras with it, is a low resolution thing, and tends to have exposure "issues" resulting in vertical bands in the sky.

Sweep panorama is pretty worthless.

Fortunately, panoramas are pretty easy to make by stitching.

I'll agree with Eric. I've tried several different camera sweep panoramas and they all seem to have some issues, good for quick snaps but not for a serious wall pano.

The panasonic version seems to be a bit more limited then most. Not a big deal to me, as I prefer to shoot full rez at my focal length of choice and use Calico for my stitching. No limits that way and better quality then any sweep pano I've seen so far. Doesn't really take that much post processing time either.
