Re: Who needs the extra MP - I do

I do get your point  - you are correct, few people really need that many MPs, even 24MP is overkill for the vast majority.  Imagine what a 12MP modern sensor could do with huge photosites.  Plus, those big files require big processing power - I have a rig that would have been considered a supercomputer not that long ago....it does get ridiculous. However, with the much higher MPs the AA filters are finally coming off and the risk or moire declines just like it did for MF sensors- so I guess it become a pick your poison proposition.

Regards,
Mike
