I agree for most intents and purposes, 26MP would be sufficient

But if you do birding like myself, cropping would be the norm so the more pixels the merrier for you can never get close enough to the birds

Instead of carrying longer and heavier lenses, you'd shoot with larger density sensors and crop at post

61MP is not outrageously excessive if you have to crop 50%, 70% (this is perfectly normal in birding)

I'd love to have Fuji offer a larger MP sensor just for that reason alone

For now that A7R4 looks mightily attractive at least for my needs


Sad thing is though that I don't think wireless technology will ever be able to keep up with the megapixel race. How nice it would be to have your images instantly transfer to a phone, drive or laptop, even in bursts! And it could even eliminate the need for a second card slot?!?
