Re: Why standardize on substandard resolution

For me, such real world comparing tests have been an eye-opener, especially when I found that about 40 skilled professional photographers couldn't tell the difference between 12 Mp aps-c and 24 Mp FF from 70 x 100 cm prints! (A700 vs A900 at ISO 200, similar angle of view). The scene was a ship building yard, with a lot of super-fine detail.

A lot of people trust numbers much more than their own eyes.

That's because they didn't stand 6" away from the print with a magnifying glass.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
