My reasons
In reply to Juhn, Feb 8, 2012

1) Super-clean shadows really liberate me to shoot with available light and/or high contrast.

2) In-camera 5:4 captures with LCD masking of the viewfinder are so nice

3) 15MP DX crop mode means I can actually travel with a fairly compact, yet high-performance lens kit

4) If I can have more detail and similar high ISO quality with 36MP, why wouldn't I take it? It opens up so much potential for creative cropping (you can't always compose precisely in-camera when you're shooting live subjects).

Unless you need to print it on very large scale regularly, it is a pain in the XX as the file is just too big...
I don't understand why there are so many peoples who now want a big printing.
I haven't actually seen many big prints.
