    Well first off there are 2 ways of getting panorama shots:

    1) using a wide angle lens

    2) stictching together a series of shots from a smaller angle (normal) lens with a program like photoshop elments 6 to make on big photo.

    Both will make good results - if you are thinking of doing a lot of panorama shots then the lens would be the best way to go - however before people can advise you on what lens to go after we would need an idea of the budget you have to spend on a lens.

    That second M.O. will work better if you use a short telephoto focal length (70 to 90mm), tilt the camera to portrait mode, and take many well overlapping photos to stitch together later.

    Using a tripod, BTW, is a given.

    For around that much money you could get the sigma 10-20mm, thats very wide.

    I wish that someone would correct the error about the "nodal point" being the correct point of rotation. It's the entrance pupil, not one of the two nodal points.

    Best,
