Re: Wide Angle Lens or Stitching?

There have been some good replies - and fabulous photos - so far in response to this thread. My two cents: For casual use, stitching is fine, depending on the software of course. This image is a Photomerge stitch in Photoshop CS6 of three handheld landscape orientation images from my Z7II. It's not perfect if you look close, but it's good enough for my purposes and I think it would make a fine print at normal viewing distances. I sometimes prefer to stitch rather than use a wide-angle lens for the reasons mentioned by others above.

This is a 50% resize of the stitched 12000x6000 image. (I could have easily done a 24000 x 12000 resolution image based on three full rez files from the Z7II but like to down-rez to help hide any stitching defects.) Either way, judge for yourself.
