Re: Why medium format at 50MP doesn't thrill me now

There are many, many, examples to show you how much of a difference large sensors make in contrast, detail, and noise, that well outweigh differences in resolution. Look at a 24MP A77 vs. a 24MP A99. Look at an 18MP Leica M9 vs. an 18MP Canon T3i.

Maybe.  But my experience with large format prints for exhibition is that once MPs are settled, its down to the lens to do the talking.  The Canon 24TSE is fantastic on both my FF and APS-C bodies to the extent that I can't tell the difference (in imager format) in print.  To make larger formats "worth it" for my kind of work they need to up the MP to match.  A digital 8x10 at 18MP isn't going to blow my 550D + tilt-shift lens out of the water... at 180MP though, it should be night and day.
