Thank you for your comments.

Yes, I agree on what is possible with 12MP. I am now exploring printing landscapes at 1.2m (47 inches) wide and it works quite well at 12MP (taken with the D3). But I can see that higher resolution would be a benefit. I am trying to get into the market for large printed landscapes for hanging on walls and the viewer is not always 3m or 10ft away. I see that people actually walk right up to the print and view it from up close - the same as I do with paintings. And the ability to go larger with excellent detail, will be quite nice.

That sounds almost exactly like what Roman has been doing. I would encourage you to talk to Roman.  He went through a lot of different techniques, with shooting, processing and with prints. I would think that he'd be glad to give you the benefit of his experiences.  He has posted some very interesting stuff here on DPR, on huge prints in the past.

Great project that I hope works out well for you.

Kerry
