No difference.

The results mimiced the print comparisons I did D800 vs DP2M vs RX100. The extra resolution is invisible in prints below A2 and insignificant until A1 size (c. 30 x 20 inches).

So there you go. Unless you are printing much larger than a 13" wide desktop printer or cropping like crazy, a 10MP class camera (4.6MP) is every bit at good

?  Which is the 10mp in this comparison?  An Rx100 has a 20MP sensor, D800 a 36MP and DP2M non-interpolated 15MP.  So 10 comes from... help

detail wise as a D800/Merrill.
