Hi all. I've been reading about the uses of medium and large-format
cameras, and was just wondering if anyone (who really knows the
ins/outs) has any opinion as to whether or not such high resolution
is actually necessary in most common applications (like landscapes or
fashion photography)

I shot MF for landscapes and find the extra resolution so valuable that I wouldn't consider anything less than 24mp and a set of lenses that can actually resolve all 24mp from corner to corner.

You really have to see it in person. I've printed plenty of test photos (landscapes) of 12mp cameras at 16x24 and 20x30 and found them all lacking after shooting MF.
