I don't care though. I don't WANT more than 12 megapixels.

At 300 dpi the 5DII will print at 12 1/2" x 18 3/4". At 300 dpi the D700 will print at 9 3/4" x 14". We're still woefully short on megapixels. If you just look at the print size comparison the 5DII doesn't seem like such a big jump, really. Still, more is better if they're good-looking megapixels (and you have glass up to the job).

At around 80 megapixels a 24" x 36" print can be made at 300 dpi. When we get to those kinds of resolutions the "megapixel race" shouldn't still be a huge issue, IMO. Another 6-7 years, in all likelihood.
