I think personally that the pixel thing is about selling cameras. My camera has more pixels than yours so it is better ugh!!!! From what I've seen the auto focus systems and frames per second need improvement over the amount of pixels that a camera has. A 24 mp sensor can produce a 16 X 24 inch print easily. Yes lots of mp's is good for cropping, but I think we depend on cropping too much these days where the subject is really too far away. Get in as right in the camera as possible without cropping 100% as I have seen a lot with the 36 mp cameras. Sharp images depend more on sharp focus than mega pixels. I've worn out cameras getting the focus adjusted right.


Agree 100%. Seems the tendency to just point the camera in the general area of the subject and crop to compose later is too prevalent. I crop sometimes to get a more pleasing composition, but it never completely changes the image. Spend more time behind the lens and less behind the computer and you don't need high mp.
