Now we have 16, 24 and 36mp models, it seems that at these levels we have almost everyones needs covered. though this was also said by some at 6 and 12 mp. I just wondered if there are many people who feel they would benefit from more than 24 and 36 in an upgrade, and as these MP numbers keep on rising, or will they plateau, a bit like intel's MHZ bumps,

More pixel just mean more cropability. Don't forget, the less pixels a sensor produces, the bigger the pixels. Bigger pixels produce cleaner images with less noise. Also, 36mp is about it for ff. Next res already exists in the form of medium format digital. Unless you are printing billboards, or cropping a 50mm like an 800mm, there is no point to anything above 12mp. I like 24 because I can crop really deep and still have a great image. 5mp is all the average print needs.
