And for wildlife shots, it is easy to see the extra feather detail and such when I took a pic of a bird with a 7D and then a 5D2, the 7D pics clearly show more. A 48MP FF would put a lot more detail on stuff when you are badly distance limited than an 8MP FF.

I'm sure that the benefit of extra pixels would be revealed by such subject matter. None of my pictures show anything like that. Many of them have large areas that are out of focus or very evenly textured. These pictures will reveal much less about pixel count.

Ah, yeah, it depends upon the type of photo (same goes for lenses, so once person can be meh about a lens and another rave about it).
