Is the 24 Mp really not enough for a photographer? Everybody is speaking about camera resolution but we still forget to speak about pc or mac displays, lenses and printing limits. A full HD 1080 resolution has 2Mp. The best reso. for displays is 2560x2048 in QSXGA mode that means 5Mp. Even a retina display can show us 3,1Mp so for what do we really need the 36 Mp?

In case you have a 8K UHDTV (4320p) has a resolution of 7680 × 4320 (33.2 megapixels), 16 times the pixels of current 1080p HDTV it makes sense to take pics with 36Mp. Somebody has one?

Dont forget about the size of these huge files in raw mode. For a wedding photographer not really good to handle with. If somebody has a display with 6000x4000 pix. i buy right now.

About printing: I own a D-Lab.3 and can see the printing limits of the 300dpi. Not even Noritsu or Fuji is able to bring this 36Mp resolution with their 420dpi to print.
