Re: Reasons for wanting higher mega pixel count

Besides all advantages others have said, also for future when there is bigger and higher-resolution monitors or if you want to print very large.

At this moment I don't really need 61mp as I view photos basically exclusively in iMac 5K, and only occasionally print upto 30x20". But believe Apple will release an iMac 8K in two years and I might need to print very large in future.

I have many photos from 10mp 1D III, OK 10 years ago but really small when viewing in iMac 5K.  Hope it had 24 or more pixels then.
