How many MP to make really good A2 prints?

Opinion: it's more about the number of square mm in the sensor

I would personally tend to not go there with my 20MP, 1" sensor Sony RX100, if another option I had on hand was a slightly lower MP count APS-C camera (assuming it too had a fairly recent Sony sensor). The Sony is phenomenal at A4 but that one MP number isn't the whole story.

Full frame = better yet. Visible pixel edges are just one out of many artifacts/defects that you don't want to see, and more magnification scale makes them all more prominent.
