Depends upon what you shoot

For weddings, the 36mp file is way too large. Most wedding pictures found in wedding albums are smaller than 8X10 and only need a 1.7 to 5mp file, where the average wedding album photograph will print nicely at 2.5mp.

landscape photographers will like the larger file. I think Canon did it right at 24mp which should do nicely at whatever is photographed. I have heard of rumors of a Canon with 40+ mp file on its way.

If you need more than 36mp then I think you should start thinking of a MF digital camera where the pixels are much larger of the same mp.
respectfully,
