Counter-intuitive as it may sound, going wide for a pano is often problematic and not just because of barrel distortion. Volumetric distortion and keystoning are amplified as the FOV increases.

so true

I have been told to shoot panos with the camera vertical, to decrease the effect of edge to edge distortion. YMMV.
I tend to shoot vertically, not so much to reduce distortion but to help with the aspect ratio of the final image. If this helps to reduce distortion also, even better.

Don't forget to switch to manual focus. You don't want your focal zone changing from image to image.

If you want really big DoF, shoot one set for focus stacking and one set for panoramas, especially if you have heavy foreground elements.
