I hope not.

I would much rather they focused on better seosor quality DR, Noise etc rather than upping the pixel count.

12MP really was enough - 16 is nice but doesn't bring any practical added benefit.

Remember that the dimensions of the image you can produce doesn't increase linearly but by the square root. So the surface area of a 16MP print can in theory be 25% bigger than 12MP but that actually amounts to quite a small extra border around the edges of your print.

If you're viewing on screen then 5MP is more than enough for virtually any purpose.
