With Panotour/krpano it merely depends on how much you wish to allow the viewer to zoom into the image, because the multi-resolution tiling (created automatically when bulding a tour with Panotour and Panotour Pro)
can handle any size of image.

Shooting hi-res panos is relatively easy (especially using a robotic pano head); stitching, rendering and post-processing hi-res pano images is often quite challenging and demands significant computer power and patience.

I shoot all outdoor panos with a 50mm equiv lens, as spheres.
with 25% overlap that makes 90 images.
Panotour makes a tour of ca 200MB to be uploaded to the web-hotel.
If there isn't anything interesting to zoom in on I downscale the pano to 71%, then the upload is ca 100MB

What is "optimal size use for spherical photos in virtual tour" ?
That depends ! Indoor, small room, church, outdoor, landscape, city .....
I guess there is no single answere to that question.

btw:
5 brackets makes 450 images. then you need power, and it's quite a challenge to get it right !
