But what makes the G10 especially suited for this. I make high MP panoramas all the time that go into the 100MP range, and with my panoramic head, I expect to begin doing multilayer ones exceeding that...should I abandon the DSLR in favor of the G10?

No offense but the tool that made that panorama was NOT the G10. He could have put any camera on the autopano head. In theory he could have put a film camera on that head and yielded the same results.

Here is another example of similar photography:

I don't remember what the camera was in the article but it was an SLR, film/digital, don't know. People were making high res panoramics long before digital, actually, the only thing the changed with digital is that high end pano heads became obsolete since the software can correct A LOT of imperfections in technique. However, pano heads with reasonable accuracy are still useful for multilayer panos, and architectural panos with wide angle lenses, since nodal heads eliminate parallax from the image.


Anyway, the G10 is no more suited for this type of photography than any other camera made. Unless of course you care to explain why the G10 is better suited? The G10 is a perfectly fine camera but without the gigapan this image doesn't exist!
