  3. I also wonder if the Mavic 2 Pro might meet your needs. I have both the Mavic 2 and the Inspire with Zenmuse X7, and end up choosing to use my Mavic 2 over the Inspire more than I thought I would. I do think it has all of the features yo mentioned as liking in the Inspire 2. You can use apps like Litchi to set waypoints and fly autonomous same routes. The Mavic 2 Pro is easier/quicker to launch and set up, especially if you're doing it from an airboat. You also can get almost the same battery life as the Inspire 2 at 20-25 minutes, while also having to carry fewer batteries with you in the field (since the inspire 2 you need 2 batteries per flight). If you need super SUPER high quality images and/or interchangeable lenses, then the Inspire 2 is still your better option. Not sure I can contribute to your focal length question as I haven't done much photo stitching. But the Mavic 2 is great.
