Yup. Of course, given the same content for a landscape image, are you saying people will choose the lower rez version. Do you think Peter Lik's, Michael Fatali, Ansel Adams, John Sexton, Clyde Butcher's, etc, etc, etc images would hold the same impact if they were shot with a 6mp DSLR for their 30" and 40" prints?

I don't think for a moment that you're foolish enough to believe so.
