Does Stuffing More Megapixels Degrade Image?
Mar 17, 2011

I have a ZS3 with 10 mp. Costco is selling a red ZS7 with the same sensor with 12+mps. I know that more megapixels does not mean a better image; does it mean a worse image?

I notice the LX5 has 'only' 10 mp yet it has a larger sensor that the ZS7. Is this a tacit admission by Panasonic that more megapixels is not only not better, but possibly worse?
