I have never understood the use of the term Megapixel Wars.  That term implies some sort of wasteful, non-productive competition.  Only a decade or so ago digital cameras had few megapixels and provided poor image quality.  I started with a miserable 3 mp camera and my current model has 18 mp and provides better image quality and better low light performance than high quality 35mm film cameras.  I don't think these advances qualify as some sort of wasteful war.  I also hope these advances are not over.

Watching Canon's slow to non-existence progress in sensor design for the past few years you might conclude that progress has reached a plateau.  I still think we will see some substantial improvements in the next few years.  I am inclined to believe that camera manufacturing is overdue for some competition.  Canon and Nikon seem like two peas in the same pod.  Let us hope that China or some other country will enter the game and get competition moving.  It is time to see the end of the phony megabuck pricing for cameras, lenses and accessories.
