I dont see how bragging about choosing devices with less megapixels (which is essentially what you did in the first post) is any better than being a MP douchebag. You are the same but on the other side of the coin.

I guess you could see it as bragging. But many will see it as I do, we know the difference and our choice in cameras should confirm it to the megpixel police (that was the point of listing them, its not like I buy expensive cameras considering whats available), but they never care to look at that, they just jump right in with their scripture about diffraction and noise like we have never considered that, just because we mention it would be nice for example for a Megapixel boost when a company brings out a new camera with an older sensor. It would have been nicer to see a newer more modern sensor with even less noise than the old one, but also a few more MP's to work with in good light.

Ummm, thats exactly what they do.

You can always turn the MPs down, and still get the benefit of the added resolution. Which makes the bragging about your camera's lower native resolution that little bit sillier. A 24 MP camera can prob be turned down to 6MP but still have the IQ of 24MP. A 6 MP camera is 6 MP with all the negatives of that.
