Dougbm_2: FZ200??????
Surely this is a must consider. More so than the short zoom Oly.

But you suggest Stylus 1s as an alternative. Ok the FZ200 is not a mega zoom (1000mm plus) but it is still a superzoom and with the distinguishing feature of a constant f2.8 lens. If I was looking for a super zoom I would definitely have the FZ200 on my list.

lac111: You need to test and compare the Tamron against the new Sigma 150-600mm C for about the same price point. Evidence is mounting that the Sigma is far superior in IQ and AF acquisition.

Good points. Wasn't aware of 2 Sigmas.

Did you actually read the review?

HubertChen: Very amazing project! I took the tour and was astounded on the level of detail captured. Excellent execution and nice presentation.

Thanks to dpreview to find such interesting project and to bring it to our attention.

I saw several questions below as to why shoot this landscape instead of say a cityscape. The answer is that in order to provide content for 365 Giga Pixel the camera needs to be quite far away. This is why they shot with 800 mm lens on APS-C which makes it 1200 mm full frame equivalent. Close to any city and in lower height there would be simply too much dirt and moisture in the atmosphere to get a clear shot of anything at these distances. Another reason is that this subject has no movement of traffic or leaves, making stitching much easier.

The clarity of the atmosphere would indeed be a consideration. I don't find it uninteresting at all. We obviously live in an over stimulated society where people don't get out in the quiet of nature enough.

Franz Weber: Why did they use a 400mm lens with 2x teleconverter instead of a 800mm lens in first place?

HubertChen. Hi res shorts!?

Lajos Hajdu: That's stupid. It's just a technological demonstration. True photography is not about mega-giga-uber-pixels but recognizing a unique and/or beautiful subject or unusual perspective, and CREATING a striking image.

Says you! I think whatever someone wants to photograph is valid - to the photographer.

PowerG9atBlackForest: Quote: "The camera, the Hasselblad A5D, has no moving parts and as such avoids unintentional internal mechanical movements that aircraft vibrations can cause."

But hey, aircraft vibrations could still move the camera as such, unintentionally, externally, mechanically.

Rocky Mtn Old Boy . Cheers. But does that have quite the vibration reduction effect of an IBIS system?

Isn't he right? Maybe they should have put 5 axis IBIS in there.

Cost I would think.

Sure the stitching is poor (but 70,000 images! - can't be easy). But I love it. Lots of detail and fun playing 'where's Wally" looking for the many people and points of interest.

IQ looks good. Question mark over af tracking and what about high ISO?
How about with a brighter lens?

Dougbm_2: Very interesting article Rishi and co. Thanks!

I feel the bridge image could have been processed a bit more ... seems a bit flat.
See my version in my gallery…http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/9311784622/photos/3203776/rizalbridge-d810-v4-fullsize
What do you think?

@Rishi:Yes I thought car light trails would have helped.
Guess I am too used to processing real estate photography : ) but I thought more foreground interest helped the shot. Hey it is your photo so of course you prefer your processing. I just thought it was a little flat and only spent a few minutes tweaking the image. Maybe the foreground should have actually been darker! Cheers

Dougbm_2: Maybe it is all the camera most of us really need. If only it was a 1inch sensor.

Yes I know but the 1/17 just doesn't cut it these days. If this was 25-125 and 1" I would certainly be looking at it.
