Re: How many MP is enough?

Thanks to all for the interesting replies. It seems that printing is really the bottom line in this MP question: if you don't need to make big prints then 8MP is probably more than enough.

However, as one or two of you have said, the technology moves on and the MP count on sensors goes up whether we want them or not.

But then there's the cropping capability and I think that's worth having extra mega-pixels for every time.
