Re: my experience is just the opposite

What's surprising though, is that the obvious and clear cut difference between 10 and 20 megapixels does not result in an obvious and clear cut improvement for all pictures as viewed by all people.

Somehow yes, I agree. But actually I wanted to say the oppsite, well, kind of.

When printed at DIN A4 (30x20cm) the resolution of the 40D is high enough to have 300dpi. So I expected a kind of perfect quality. But compared with prints at the same size of files from the 5DII I noticed a difference that I didn't expect. (DR or noise at high iso is not what I'm talking about.)

So my conclusion is: More pixel give you better prints even at smaller print sizes.
