For a magazine, I'll go for the 24 PC using the horizontal shift
when two or three shots are needed.
If for corporate work, I even use a 300mm ƒ2.8 on a robot for
360° panos. Up to 240 shots — 4 rows in 60 columns will be
The tools are determined by the job and its final print.

This was created from 12 shots at 130mm (70-200, portrait mode) using my D750. The final image is 22347x5786.
That said, if you want to be really particular when doing multi-shot panos, you might want to consider a nodal slide and tripod. I don't bother as I think post does a fine job fixing that sort of distortion for landscapes. Buildings would be a different issue.
