Re: What would more MP mean to you ?

For the size of images I print a 12mp camera is more than enough. Largest prints I've done are 24"x16" and I've got several prints that size with a 12mp camera that look fantastic. I use a Nikon D7100 and Fuji XM-1 and just done a test print of an almost identical image one with the fuji at 16mp and one with the d7100 at 24mp and both printed at 19"x13" on my Canon ix6550. To my eyes apart from a slight difference in colour there is no visible difference between the two. So as I say for me at least, I certainly don't need any more than 16mp to produce easily up to 24"x16" prints which is the largest prints I would want to print.
