The 'megapixel race' card is so overplayed that it is tiresome to hear. I truly doubt that Pentax engineers sat around the table from one another and discussed moving to the front of the pack by addition of some megapixels. Seems they are continuing the trend of image improvement. That direction will invariably lead to more megapixels sooner or later.

and not go on the megapixel race. Having no AA filter extends the resolution for sure. There were several of us that preferred this route and I am glad Pentax did because for many jobs 16 MP is more than well enough already, introducing more all it's going to do is show more lens defects and be a workflow clog to get a bit more resolution that for many domains it won't matter.
