Re: How much resolution is ENOUGH or TOO MUCH?

I think there's a rather weird disconnect.

When Nikon first introduced 24 MP APS-C cameras, everyone said, "oh my god, that's TOO MUCH resolution, no one needs that much resolution or can do anything with it."

But when Nikon removes the OLPF so that the 24 MP sensor can have even more resolution, everyone praises this as the smart thing to do.

I don't get it. Is 24 MP too much resolution, or not enough resolution?

I don't think there is a point where you can have too much resolution, unless the image degrades in other ways. But, do you need all that resolution? The final output size and media used is the real decider.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
