Honestly, I dont understand this fascination with 12MP either- if you print only up to 7.5x10, you CANNOT get any more resolution past 7 MP on Canon and HP printers or past 10 MP on Epson or Lexmark printers.  The only reason to ever go past those resolution for 99.9% of us who never print larger than that is for cropping.  And I find 100 percent crops to be absolutely horrid on any of these pinhead sensors so zooming is far better than cropping.  I would even chose a teleconverter over cropping.

Who said the you will print 100% crops of these pinhead sensor cams? If you shoot at 8MP of a distant subject and you do some cropping which is pretty common for birding and macro, you will end up with a 2MP picture which means you can only print it at 4x6 size and that is even gonna show horrendous detail.
