But, now we're talking about exceeding 42MP, which is a very much higher threshold and one that 99% of photographers will never surpass.

Be careful. Never is a long time.

Not when wanting a new camera and asking the loved one... 

Or maybe you intend to include cellphone users in the denominator...

Or maybe change direction and include large format cameras - 9x12 cm or 4x5 inch - guess we are talking 300-400 MP full frame to beat such monsters (at least based on something like 6 micron photographic film grain lumps as the basis for that kind of images).

Then suddenly 61 MP seems whimpy...
