Something to consider RE: high MP counts

High megapixel counts are mostly wasted in the current market when you consider output media (standard print sizes, the Web, computer monitors).

But if you think long-term, it makes sense.  Apple is rolling out retina displays on all of their devices; other manufacturers will soon follow.  4K video-capable televisions (approx. 12 MP) will eventually emerge and they'll all be Internet ready.

So maybe 24 MP seems like overkill now, but in 5 - 10 years the world will be full of large, high-resolutions screens.
