Re: How many MP is enough?

MP must exceed diffraction limit slightly more than 4 times (linearly, for bayern-like filters. For foveons everythin under 2 is enough). In this case we'll achieve maximum color accuracy, no moire artifacts, maximum sharpness. Everything under is a compromise. It would be about 200Mp for 36x24 sensor. MP over it is useless.
