Re: marketing brilliance to have one super high-res color

They are taking a step up, not taking a step back. We will get 20MP resulting JPG images with the Quattro sensor compared to 15MP images with the Merrill sensor, that is even more details than what the Merrill sensor currently is capable of producing.

However there is one thing that is puzzling me... The super high 3:2 sized JPG mode which have 40MP in a 7680x5120 format. How can that possibly work when the sensor only have 20MP in a 5424×3616 format?
