I can think of a few advantages:

1. You've effectively and seamlessly captured the equivalent of several hundred MegaPixels worth photos without the challenges of having to stitch both horizontally and vertically, all in one shot, all at the same exposure moment.

2. Assuming you have the right field-of-view, you can take detailed photos of large scale objects or landscapes, albeit the objects might have to come to you, and breakdown/assembly of the camera becomes a challenge in of itself.

Some of those items do become cost-prohibitive - particularly Item 1 - so it might be worth the 50 grand when you compare that to manhours to capture and process the stitches alone.

"Toodle-loo from Covey22!"

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.
