pixel amounts follow no logic

Amount of pixels within a camera follow no logic.  It used to be you had to get a 35mm SLR in order to have lots of pixels  Now Many aps-c dSLRs have more pixels than most 35mm dSLRs.  And P&S cameras now are in the 20 MP range which is more pixels than some aps-c dSLRs!  So the pixel count world is all mixed up now.  This is largely because P&S cameras get replaced every 12 months on average and aps-c replaced every 12 to 24 months while 35mm dSLRs get replaced every 3 to 4 years.  Plus lower end, lower priced products have higher sales volumes driving profit.  So makers want to throw lots of pixels in low end units to drive sales.

56 MP of recorded image is nice.. if lenses are around to resolove that amount of detail.  larger files for the sake it aren't any good if you only get 30 MP of resolution for instance.
