Congrats on the exhibition. I wish I were within range to see it.

My experience is similar to yours. I've produced gallery quality prints from high end pigment printers with my 6 MP 10D, 10 MP 40D, 15 MP 50D and 18 MP 7D and frankly can't tell the difference in the final output. I've not pushed the envelope in size but at sizes up to 16x24 there is no discernable difference. I've been fortunate to have prints displayed in exhibitions and no one (even the other displaying photographers) asked what equipment was used for the capture. The prints either stand on their own or they don't.  The only advantage I've found is for cropping into the scene for something I didn't orginally see but then other issues can arise.

Interesting thread.
