Some People Need Megapixels and others don't
In reply to Yamil R. Sued, Jul 12, 2010

Your example is valid. I don't need anything more than 8MP for example because most of my pictures are either printed in News papers (which have toilet paper quality) or posted online at something like 800x600 resolution. So I kept scratching my head when the mark IV came with more megapixels.

But some other people do. There are other commercial photographers who are using things like Medium formats to really get that extra mega pixel for those mega large Prints.

So I would say that it depends on what type of prints people want to make.
