I just don't know why camera companies insist on cramming pixels in when they could give class leading IQ with half the megapixels. All that detail from all those extra pixels are lost anyways due to diffraction.

Because most people aren't aware of this.

These cameras are aimed at a market who see the bigger numbers and think bigger must be better.

Remember the cheap apartment store small telescopes advertising 1000x magnification?  Same thing.
