Personally I find 16mp hits the sweet spot.

I have had a few cameras with 24mp sensors both Sony and Nikon. ( the Nikon's is their own 24MP sensor )

When they are good they are very very good - but - they are frequently either noisy or soft. I found the hit rate for my previous 16mp cameras higher - I don't know if the 24mp APSC sensors push the lenses too far or if they are just too noisy but I would not go back to a 24mp sensor again - not in APSC anyway.

This is just my personal opinion and experience and not a scientific analysis! 

I am now debating if I should get the Fuji X100 which I owned before or an XA1 or XM1 !

Their sensor size is just what I am looking for to complement my Nikon V1 with its super little 10mp sensor.

Decision decisions.....
