in other words how far down the rabbit hole should you chase small improvements in gear.

will it translate to much better images if you get a lens which score 7% more on a optical test ?

is it worth it to ebay gear because a new model has 60 mp - not 38 ?

these are questions that boggle the mind

A 49 year old man who is obsessed with megapixels should take a long hard look at himself, his family believes.

HiRez1970 was traumatised by the controversy over whether you you should measure resolution linearly or by area, although this is not particularly weirder than having made 1256 posts himself on the subject.

HiRez said: “I’m not weird about imaging chips per se. It’s just that when I die I want to buried in a Ghanian Camera Coffin. Or be exhibited with my gear at Photokina."
