The number of pixels is irrelevant, what is important is final output size and viewing distance. Does anyone publish larger images on the internet if they use a 24MP rather than a 6/10/12/16MP camera?

Have magazine page sizes increased because of higher pixel counts now available?

If you had to print a billboard from a 10MP file, what's the difference if you now have a 24MP file? Actually, there is one, the printing resolution used will be higher using a higher pixel count and results will be better.

The issue comes when one checks IQ at 100% on a low res monitor, no matter what the original pixel count of file is. Then AF accuracy, DoF, camera shake, all have a different impact. One should always compare different cameras at same final output size, at same viewing distance.

The 1/FL rule, even corrected for sensor size, requires that image is 12x8" viewed from 2 ft away, the standard for DoF and all image characteristics.

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