Re: Information/Ink Ratio important to me.

Hello,

I am quite staisfied with the results of my K5. I never had a situation where resolution was limiting.

The additional resolution of a 24MP sensor in relation to the grwoing size of the output files is a burden that is to hard for me. The information/ink ratio is better with a good 16 MP sensor.

If it would be possible to improve 16 MP sensors a little more (wider contrast range even at higher ISO, higher ISO performance, less noise, better and mor brilliant colours) a camera with this sensor would be more attractive for me than a 24 or even higher MP sensor.

Best regards

Holger

I found this out this week as well.
