Then 12MP is enough?

I have a high end 4k monitor.

IIRC  sony uses 6K and downsized to get the sharpest 4K video.

Take into account some aggressive cropping and 12MP or 16MP would be enough for your two points.  A 12 MP sensor may have less noise due to the larger pixel size, and 6MP is enough for sharp 4K images.  And I've seen highly detailed 30 inch prints from 8MP images, so that is covered too.

I think the real reason for more MP is the same reason we buy Dodge Demons.  No one here will admit this I bet.   I just bought an A7RIII and I drive a car with a large v8 so I am in that group.
