I think you have to be realistic aout what you are getting.12,2MB is way plenty for a small consumer lense. Also, less pixels means better low light reproduction, not less.I must say this F2 lense sounds like a huge step up from other point and shoots, but remember that the pro Nikon 200mm F2 lense costs $ 5000 and this package is $ 500!I have a D3 with a 12mb full frame sensor which takes stunning photos which I can easily print on my A2 printer.In this case, less is more! The speedlight commander function makes this camera punch way above its weight. Unless I can have a true TTL large bright viewfinder like we can have on a pro camera, why bother when you are going to get a better idea of the image from the viewfinder anyway?I need a camera I can keep in the glovebox or in my pocket but which can light my products and reproduce commercial quality images when I'm not carrying around a big heavy camera bag full of pro lenses. There isnt another camera that can do all this for me.
