What is the practical value of a 20 Mp image?

What does a 20 mp image buy YOU? How would that improve YOUR photography? Look, I'm not saying you shouldn't have a camera capable of producing a 20mp image if you want or need one. But I think I am saying many of us have accepted the assumption that we need such a camera without thinking much about why.

Would you explain your personal 'why'?

I'm so bright, my father calls me son.

Now that you've judged the quality of my typing, take a look at my photos. . .
