Hi Ron,

Please don't confuse pixel count, display size in percentages and resolution. You're falling into the same trap created by marketing which millions of others have.

Resolution is measured in visible line pairs on standardized resolution charts and "not" by the number of pixels and certainly not by the percentage reported by software to "fill the screen."

The term "X" megapixels resolution is only even roughly useful when comparing sensors with very similar construction and then only a "correlation" between the number of pixels in the output file and the optical resolution as measured on standardized resolution charts.

Comparing the number of pixels produced in the output file of a Foveon sensor and the number of pixels produced in the output file of a CMA sensor with an AA filter and equating these figures to optical resolution is virtually useless.

Best regards,

Lin
