24 megapixels
Oct 7, 2013

Just saw on Twitter Pentax have released a 24mp camera (DPR review) Not long ago Nikon released a 24mp and Leica has a model too. This poses an interesting question or two.

Firstly is 24mp any better than say 16mp? What benefits does it offer? If indeed it does offer a better shooting experience then it raises my next question.

Why, when major camera makers mentioned above have gone 24mp, has Olympus come into the New Camera market with the EM-1 at only 16mp?

I'm not a gearhead so relatively naive when it comes to the MP quotient and looking for some knowledge from professionals in the area.
