Eric,

It depends the uses of your photography and whether image quality is important for you. More and more photography is limited to posting online. The typical online image uses less than the equivalent of 0.3 mp. For many photographers, even the current cellphones provide way more resolution than is needed.

If you print or crop, then resolution becomes more important. Even then it depends on the types of images you print. Typically a portrait does not need to be high resolution. In fact high res could be a disadvantage and will emphasize skin pores and flaws. High res becomes important if you are shoot landscapes or other images where detail is important.

I suppose fewer and fewer of us are interested in improved image quality. That is why Canon can sell WiFi and touchscreens and video performance instead of IQ improvements.

Anyway, you will clearly see an improvement in IQ when moving from 10 to 20 mp. Don't expect to be able to print twice as large. You need 4x the increase in order to do that.
