Re: You haven't increased the resolution....

Stitch was done with a 65mm lens simulating a wider view.

Results are pretty much the same a comparing Dp2m to RX100. It takes a huge print to see a difference.

The reason presumably is that there is only so much detail you see in a given area.  The best the eye can resolve is 300 ppi and that only with perfect black and white dots side by side. Colour resolution is way lower.

You want more detail, you print bigger. And that is what resolution gives you: the ability to print bigger.
