Re: Sorry, ANOTHER Megapixel Thread (Printing and Megapixels)

24 Mp is not needed for little prints like that.

High resolutions show their value in large prints, say A2 size or bigger. They will look good on the 8K TVs which we will be using in ten or fifteen years (if there isn't a collapse of civilisation).

So I see the higher resolutions of today's cameras as an investment for the future. When I look at the photos I shot 30 years ago, I wish they had better resolution -- or that I had shot them all on medium format rather than mostly on 35mm.
