Big misconception...More pixels doesn't mean better IQ.

I am very familiar with Mega Pixels I have bought several cameras with less mega pixels for performance.  I bought the Olympus XZ-1 with only 10MP on a larger compact sensor and the FZ200 with only 12 versus the 16 of similar cameras.

But when camera has a larger sensor and a good lens asking for 14-16 in a sensor this size is not unreasonable.  But I am getting more and more comfy with 13.1 or 12.8  its fine.  But having a little more crop zoom is nice occasionally when the conditions, your lens, or timing didn't allow a perfect set up.

Everyone has done some cropping to frame something after the fact unless they have no one they are accountable to, don't wear a watch, and can stop time.  If this sensor matched the pixel density of the 70D that has their most modern sensor, it could easily accommodate 16MP effective.  16MP on a sensor that size would be fine.
