I think I did about 50% overlap.

Frankly, almost any focal length that lens is capable of could cause problems. The problem is edge distortion. You may have to overlap the images rather severely to get good seams. You are really better off using a longer focal length lens and just taking more shots - and it may not even require many more because you won't have to overlap them as much.

Whatever you do, if you use the Tokina make sure that you have the camera dead level when shooting, or the convergence distortion will just about kill any chance of a good stitch.

Sorry, but this is inaccurate. The focal length (or rather, the field of view) has virtually no effect on panorama stitching. Distortion is usually corrected upon stitching, and "convergence" is just a matter of leveling the panorama's horizon (feature which is sadly lacking in Photomerge...).

All these panoramas are shot at 11mm (or close to that):

However, it is a good idea to keep the horizon smack in the middle of the image when shooting, as most panoramic projections can't handle large (over ~90 degrees) vertical fields of view.

thank you for posting and helping me show that it is possible to do panos at wide angles!

I've shot a number of 3 photo panoramas with my 15-85mm set to 15mm. I use portrait framing and rotate the camera horizontally so that each image overlaps the previous one by about 1/3. This gives the equivalent of approximately a 10mm lens coverage. If you do the same with the Tokina 11-16 set at 11mm. The result would be the equivalent of about a 7.3mm lens.

By the way, I'm thinking of getting the Tokina 11-16. How do you like it in general? Is it as sharp as the reviews say from edge to edge when stopped down a little?

i absolutely love this lens! im barely shooting at 2.8, i'm always around f4-8. So yes, it is quite sharp from what i have seen so far!
