Too many megapixels? Six is enough for an 8x10.

Urban Myth?

Where does this stuff come from?

There are many factors that determine noise and dynamic range but number of pixels isn't one of them. If it is, can someone please explain how it's possible?

I suspect that at some time in the past some camera came out with more MPx and at the same time screwed up the design to give more noise, assumptions were made and there you have it the myth was born. But try as I might I can't find an example of a camera that proves this out.
