      If you zoom in you get a good resolution until there is a step where
      another image is loaded. Not perfectly registered and with different
      contrast. This image doesn't add more details. It only increases the image.

      That's no surprise, since most likely this wasn't shot at f/4 which
      would be needed to produce an effective resolution of 320 GP for a
      spherical panorama. Higher aperture values cause more blurring due to
      diffraction. See http://wiki.panotools.org/Diffraction#Resolution for
      details. The extender doesn't increase the resolution since the
      effective aperture is changed as well: The table shows the same values
      for 800mm f/8 and 400mm f/4.

      This is the end of the gigapixel race.
