Good argument... NOT.

You do not need/want the resolution, so don't buy the camera and ignore all the (over)hype. The hype is also known as marketing.

Just buy/use what YOU need for a camera and don't worry about what others are doing/using. Only someone who is very insecure would be worrying about any of this.

What are you going to do when Nikon and Canon announce their new 60+MP FF DSLR and/or mirrorless camera? How did you react when Fuji announced their 100MP GFX?

Probably same way I did, "boy I wish they would put that money that they put into the megapixels on that sensor and use it for better autofocus, smaller camera size, lighter camera, longer battery life, better viewfinder, etc because I'm not in the billboard industry".

Sony are just doing that. The A7RIV has better AF, longer battery life, better viewfinder, pixel shift. It is small and light. Things are not exclusive, today high res sensors can be coupled with other processing power advances.

But I do have a 30 x 20 image on my wall from a 12mp D700 printed on aluminum that has tons of detail even very close.

Yes. But others may require even more detail, or crop a lot and still preserve detail.

It's all needs and wants and they are different for everyone. Some of us would just rather have the money go into other camera body features or improvements.

And it is going. Look at Fuji's own GFX100 - 100 MP with IBIS. And improving in AF too.
