Does anyone think that Olympus will offer an OMD camera with a 24 mp or greater sensor in the near future?

The 16MP sensor is way ahead of 35mm film so 24MP is getting into medium format film territory and is a bit unnecessary for normal screen viewing or for averagely large prints that will be examined closely.

Marketing of course is another animal and we will see 24MP eventually and that despite Olympus declaring that "12MP is all you need" (and they are right).

Even the rather pointless Ultra HD TVs being pushed now are only 8MP, so why is 24MP needed?
