Yeah, it might be 8 brilliant pixels, and it would make a few very happy, but I think it would be a suicide mission for the company. To some degree this already happened when the E-1 was 5MP and the competition was 6MP. The 5MP were of very good quality, but the psychology of being a million short was just hard to sell.

That wasn't really what gave people pause about the E-1 though.  It was the $2200 price-tag, in conjunction with high noise, limited dynamic range, restricted lens availability and dodgy C-AF in what was supposed to be a 'pro' camera.

Making it 6 or even 8MP would not have made it much more of a success.
