All my recent panos have been with my 5Dmk1 and the Tok typically at 13mm. Usually shoot 4 - 6 round at 0' and zenith and nadirs at +/- 90'.

I've not tried my 7D yet but would I get better overall IQ with it? I'm also guessing that I could get away with the same shooting pattern or could anyone indicate likely settings?

The 5D and 10 - 13mm means I can more or less do a full in 4 shots which is very nice for speed and busy scenes but if I try suitable subjects, will the 7D and extra shots bring better quality?
