Why do people continue to buy 16MP cameras when 24MP's are available from almost every manufacturer?

It is a question I can not find an answer to, as a NEX 6 and a a6000 are so close in price that it doesn't make sense.

It can not be money, and it certainly has been proven that 16s are NOT in any way better or even equal to 24's.

Even a Samsung 21mp camera (NX series) will outperform all the 16s (Nex 5 and 6's, all the Panasonic and Olympus 4/3) in every measurable way. I say this from personal experience, not from reading ridiculous nit picking reviews, but rather from actual use and observation of the output.

So why is the 16MP camp so stubborn??
