If you see yourself making good use of it beyond that shot, then why not? If ultimate resolution is the only criteria, then I'd explore further options.

It is all about resolution, the 12MP is good, it isn't great.  The first time I did this shoot, I borrowed someone Canon 1Ds at 18MP, the 12MP has never had the same level of detail I got that first year.  It also happens that my son is going to be in the picture this year, so it is a bit more important.  If I hand the funds, I would simply rent a 80MP MF camera and back, but I simply cannot justify that type of cost.

So, what other options do you suggest?
