Re: Honestly

There is 33% more data but as humans that data needs to have a position, you can not use that larger data set outside of it's position.

MP is a measure of area and not resolution. With a higher MP every line you crop off the top also cuts more pixels off the ends so although you may have 33% more data the resolution is less than 15% greater.

It requires a jump of 4X to double the resolution of a file.

So the 16MP D7000 would, for any value of a printed pixel, if printed 1:1, be twice as large as a 4MP image from a D1H.

The good news is that if you have a D7000 even the H4D-60 does not have twice your resolution. (ignoring aspect ratio)

That being said 18MP would be my personal ideal for a DX sensor, past that I do not want to deal with the larger files.
