I see that Fuji owners may want more than 16mp.

But I have also been a member of some other forums for many years and now after Sony and Nikon have 36mp and Canon, Pentax etc have 24mp, I have not seen any threads about this for the past 12-18 months. Most people are satisfied, seems like.

I wanted more mp when Nikon only had 12mp cameras, but nowadays anyone can choose what they like, unless you have to stay with one brand. I assume within next year Fuji, Olympus etc will also provide 24mp sensors.

I'm tempted to buy a Fuji XT1 or Oly EM1 and believe that 16mp will be enough. But having a 36mp camera, it is easy to say, so I understand some want more than 16.

But all in all, the yearning for more than 24/36 mp is not there, but if one is limited to one brand and 16mp, I see why some want a little more resolution.
