For weddings, the 36mp file is way too large...

landscape photographers will like the larger file...

It's interesting how this 24mp mystique has developed but I don't think there is any truth to it based on the results we have all seen so far. Next gen is probably going to keep on upping the mp too.

I had a young whipper-snip at the branch office photo store start the yadda yadda 24mp is better all around yadda yadda yadda the other day too.

But the truism that is closer to the truth I think is "all else being equal, more is better" and at the pixel level the all else of the 24mp and 36mp appear to be equal

I've never been a mp seeker, my highest cams are 16mp currently, but even I can see what everyone is talking about.
