Re: 36Mpx is a brain-fart turned reality

Well, all that for the very, very few occasions you need to print huge stuff.

More than printing big, 36MP gives you the ability to crop to great extends, meaning much higher flexibility than say a 16MP sensor.

For instance, by cropping a 300mm shot (assuming it's sharp) you could easily get great magnification without breaking the bank and lugging around super large and heavy lenses.

This seldom point makes it much more worthwhile than a low MP sensor such as the one in the D4.
