How does this commentary relate to Canon's 7D
Feb 17, 2010

In thinking about the 7D and it's 18mp on a APS - C sensor here is a commentary that Dpreview made about the Canon 50D and it's 15mp on a C sensor.

Just wondering how this applies?

[quote]It appears that Canon has reached the limit of what is sensible, in terms of megapixels on an APS-C sensor. At a pixel density of 4.5 MP/cm² (40D: 3.1 MP/cm², 1Ds MkIII: 2.4 MP/cm²) the lens becomes the limiting factor. Even the sharpest primes at optimal apertures cannot (at least away from the center of the frame) satisfy the 15.1 megapixel sensors hunger for resolution.[ quote]
