Ultra Wide or stitch panorama ?

So I recently got a Rokinon 14mm variant that may be defective. I like the 14mm view, but will be looking for a new UWA.

My widest lens is a Sigma 35mm Art. I was thinking of just trying to use this and stiching images together, since people seem to stitch images from even the widest lens already.

Has anyone only done stitching? Trying to decide before I rent the 16-35 f4 or tamron 15-30mm

What type of photography are you going to do with the lens? Will the subject be landscapes or still life that would hold still long enough for a multi-shot panorama to be taken? Will the type of photograph be okay with a lot of sky or ground - when you go ultra-wide, you're getting a lot of the environment around the "subject" that may not matter (Think of a skyline picture... do you want a LOT of sky just so you can get the width?)?

I've tried stitching, but to me its rather frustrating and difficult (perhaps I need more practise). Lens imperfections such as vignetting etc. will add to the difficulty.

Also, your subject matter may not allow for panoramas: cars, people, water (waves) and anything that moves will make a panorama really difficult.

I do have a couple of great stitched panoramas of London's skyline which has a lot of detail (you can tell what time it is on Big Ben) so there are certainly oppertunities for stitching.

Stitching made easy = TSE 24mm or TSE 17mm

I wonder if the panorama modes of some smartphones will make it into DLSRs. These are just stitched exposures (as errors in the images clearly show in some situations), and could be done better, but are not half bad for what they are. It would be great to put a DSLR on a tripod with a pan head, level it up, and put it in a panorama mode to get the stitched image SOOC. You would have what ought to be a much better image than from your phone, and it would be RAW. You could also select whatever focal length would work for you, and not have the distortion of UWAs.

I am sure that this has been discussed before, but it just occurred to me now. ;-)a

That would be good even if the camera stopped short of stitching it all together. Maybe the camera would be able to meter for the whole scene, freeze the exposure settings and maybe favor certain settings. It could point out how much overlap is recommended. And then it could name the files appropriately so you can find them easily for post processing and stitching.

There are a lot of possibilities, but many of them should be practical, given what a several-years-old iPhone can do.

I do both. I own the EF 8-15mm f4L. I make panos with PS and LR6.

Both! :-)

With the latest version of Lightroom, stitching is a breeze. It will stitch RAW files quickly and the results are excellent. For landscape panoramas, I personally find 35mm too long a focal length. I don't like to do multiple rows, so I'm most often shooting with my 16-35mm f/4 in portrait orientation, in the 16 to 24mm range. I use an Oben travel tripod that has a ball head which also has a panning joint that is marked in degrees. I do not personally use an offset mount to get the lens rotating about its nodal point as would be the technically correct way, but you might want to if your shots are going to have large objects close to the camera (e.g. automotive photography), such that minimizing perspective change will get better results. Normally, if I have a subject in the foreground, I can fit it into one frame with the UW so this has not been an issue for me yet.
