Is the Megapixel war over?

Hi there,

If you closely scrutinize the Timeline page of dpreview here, you will also see what I have seen, namely that the majority of new cameras released by digicam makers since January this year fall in the 3 Mpxl range. Moreover, Nikon, Canon, Oly, Minolta and Sony all together have introduced six new models under 2 Mpxls (1.92 - 1.99).

Is the war over? Or is 4-5-6 Mpxl too much for "everyday" use? Or is it too expensive? Or the makers are looking for more market share?

What's your opinion?
