The rest of the article shows that at 24mp on APS-C that point has not been reached or exceeded. I suspect though that 24mp may be close to the limit with existing technology so greater resolution requires larger sensors. That may change in the future.

A researcher and the inventor of CMOS sensor technology, Eric Fossum, told us about a year ago with a reply on this forum that it seems that the 24 Mp Sony aps-c sensor (A65, A77) more or less is the optimum balance between pixel size and total image quality for today's sensor technology.

Thanks for the response. It appears that my suspicions are true.

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.
