Where have all the 24mp APS-C small cameras gone?

I guess the title says it all doesn't it?

I was looking for a small camera to replace my E-M5 and all the ones that attracted me, X100s and Ricoh GR, are 16mp. My problem is that 16mp is on the limit of enough to crop. The only 24mp small camera that comes to mind is the NEX-7.

Why manufacturers are not coming out with higher res cameras? Manufacturing costs or difficulties? Not so much public interest? Squeezing the last coppers out of their R&D costs in their 16mp fabs?

Anyone knows about rumors or future releases I would totally give you internet brownies.

Capo. Humper

Fujifilm X100S Sony Alpha NEX-7
