1) most monitors can only display 2 megapixels

2) if you take into account heavy cropping, or ultra-HD monitors, you still don't need more than 8 or 10mp to display the image optimally.

3) less pixels on same size sensor within same sensor-generation generally mean better high-ISO performance and better DR/colour-depth at higher ISO's too. It also means smaller-size image files: more space on card, and quicker processing in post.
