Re: Do Less Pixels = Sharper Images; yes for pixel-peepers.

At the pixel level this is certainly true. But no one should care about that. What is important is what the image will look like at the normal viewing size, with appropriate processing, and there the larger number of pixels will give a better (more detailed) image of equal sharpness to one from a sensor of the same size with fewer pixel.
