"All the megapixels" is an arbitrary number though. 4MP is 4MP no matter the total number of MP the camera has, whether it's 4 or 36 or 12 or whatever. If you don't need them for printing large, then the extra pixels serve no purpose. And again, it's about tradeoffs. People buy NEX because it's portable and in some cases, pocketable with a lens. Obviously a pancake prime won't be exactly the same or have all the advantage of a real zoom lens, but for many people the size and weight advantage is critical enough to make up for having less DOF control or less pixels in the final image.

I'm not saying Sony shouldn't make larger zoom lenses as well, but it makes a ton of sense to make the sensor 36MP in order to maximize the utility of pancake lenses, which is one of the things NEX users want the most.
