99.9% of my photos stay on my computer. Bigger images are just a waste of storage space. It's the same for everybody.

Except that my 20MP camera, with a 200mm (35Eq) lens, takes great 5MP shots at 400mm (35Eq). In a pinch, I can even get 2.2MP at 600mm (35Eq). So I agree that 12 MP not necessary for 2MP monitor. Of course only low ISO shots can survive that kind of cropping.
For sensors with the same technology, it is a fiction that cameras with large MP count are noisier. Of course, if one is pixel peeping, the 1-pixel camera is the least noisy (as a previous poster mentioned).
