RX10 and RX100: who uses lower 10mp or 5mp? when? why?

Thought I would get the old thread 'empty' for new comments, and rather than make it why not, make it: When and Why do you use less than available 20mp maximum.

Me: You all know I love the immediately easy additional Extended Optical Zoom you get at 10 or 5 mp, as well as my beloved and far reaching CIZ. Even better on the RX10, wow.

Having been quite happy with pics and prints from 10mp R1, and continuing to see praiseworthy R1 images, I have absolutely no hesitation using 10mp, even with some cropping probable.

Mini Challenge 303 was 'Under 6mp images', many fine ones were posted.

File size used to be, but is certainly not a consideration now. RAW however, the file sizes are too big to post, so work is needed to show them here.
