Why I love 20MP.

After experimenting with various settings, I am back to the 20MP (16:9) setting as my default setting.

My workflow is to look at the (16:9) images on my 51" HD TV first where I can delete the outtakes before loading the keeper images into the computer. Then I crop the images down to (3:2) which still gives me about a 17MP image size.

The final results of this process are just like I had used a 1.4x teleconverter, basically doubling the equivalent focal lengths of the (35mm) focal lengths marked on my lenses.

When I want to shoot at the widest focal length that any of my lenses provides, I simply switch back to 24MP (3:2)
