Wide angle lens versus stitching together images?

Hi,

I am debating if I should buy a wide angle lens.  I like the images I can get from a wide angle lens, but it is really any different than taking 2-3-4 images and then stitching them together with software?

Certainly the wide angle will be easier, but stitching on the computer is not too hard (if the source images are set up properly), AND doesn't stitching allow for closer zoom in each individual source image?

Trying to find a reason to justify the extra expense and the extra lens load.

Thanks!
