Re: As long as I don't want to make prints larger than 18" x 12" 10 meg is fine.

15 or 16" on the long side is about as much as I go with with 10mp and get a crisp looking print.

Back in the 35mm film days I was rarely happy with prints wider than 12". It probably had to do with the extra optical steps and the attention to detail of the print maker.
