I have neither the new sony camera nor a wide angle lens, I might go into a sony store later and see if I can try it out. But... for those of you who are more knowledgeable, is automated quality panoramic stitching going to effectively replace super-wide angle lenses for scenic / landscape pictures? (or at least for the home-users? not true-professionals?) Why or why not? It's cheaper for me to go out and buy one of the new sony panoramic cameras than it is to buy a wide angle lens. As for carrying it around, it's roughly the same size as a :43: lens, maybe smaller. It may have worst low light abilities but for landscape pictures, what proportion would be during the day v.s. during the night? I have no idea what the resulting quality is yet... If I'm thinking of buying a wide angle lens for scenic / landscape pictures, price per result, this is a very real option to consider even right now already - panoramic camera ($450) or wide angle lens ($750)... Part of me says, if my olympus had that ability right now, I don't think I'd even be considering a wide angle lens for landscapes.
