"Gigapan Epic Pro - lens & software suggestions?"

Hello,

My interests lie in architectural photography (and related architectural sculpture) for my teaching and research (art history). I am applying on a departmental budget to purchase a Gigapan Epic Pro to offer my students the next best experience of architectural space other than standing in the buildings themselves.

First question: I use a D700 and the relevant telephotos I own are a 180mm 2.8 AFD and 70-300 VR. Do you have any recommendations re one or other of these lenses for Gigapan high res composite photography (unfortunately the budget won't stretch to a 70-200 2.8!).

Second question: will the bundled software do the job for 360 x >180 composites or must I invest in PTGUI or such-like?

Many thanks in advance of any advice received,

Jethro

ps. this is my first Nikonians post so apologies if it is not within the best discussion thread (I'm stilll finding my way around the site); I figured the D700 was sufficient a connection ...
