If I have to choose between cameras of the same kind, I choose the one with the higher pixel count. I do moon and bird shots, and some times they need enlarging. Given the choice between a longer lens and more pixels, it is more pixels that retains the detail. I also have the lousy habit of trying to read ships names on wide angle harbour shots. With 16 MP I can at 100 %, with 10 MP it is partially guess work.
