Re: A3 prints...

As a control, I also printed A3 versions of Quentin Bargate's test shot comparing the NEX 7 and the DP2M.

Also the same.

So there you go, there is no visible difference in print quality that I can detect between the DP2M, the D800, the RX100 compact and the NEX 7/Zeiss 24mm printed at A3 on Permajet Matt Plus 240 on my Epson R2400 printer.

My conclusion: there is no point to me buying an expensive state of the art high resolution camera for the image quality when I print no larger than 17 x 11.5 inches on matt paper as they all look pretty much the same (which supports what I found when I was pondering buying a NEX 7: A3 prints from it looked identical to those from the NEX 3).

My current cameras (NEX 5n, Lumix G3, Pentax K5 even the SD14) all max out my printer at A3 size.

Job done really

I agree with you whole heartedly that there is no reason to buy any camera beyond the Nex 5N, Lumix G3, Pentax K5 or the SD14 if the max size of your printing will never be larger than 17 x 11.5.

The reason I purchase the Dp2m was so I could shoot razor sharp images across the frame at f2.8 and  print images at 24x30 on up to 40x60 inches with very little interpolation having to take place using photozoom pro.  Mission accomplished.
