Bart Hickman: The best use of 24Mpixels is to extend the reach of a sharp zoom lens like the 16-85 (which is plenty sharp enough to support cropping down to at least the equivalent of an m43 sensor.)
And what is the purpose of a 24MP sensor? Does it have a defined purpose? Is it not supposed to be user defined?. Dont get me wrong, personally I like the 16MP sensor.
