Re: Reasons for wanting higher mega pixel count

The main reason I like the higher mega pixels is for increased sharpness and future proofing. As display resolutions continue to increase, I want my images to be able to look sharp for as long as possible. That said, I'm sure someday we'll be using AI to upscale our 8MP smartphone shots so they look great on 8K displays,

Being able to crop more certainly comes in handy at times, but I rarely ever shoot with the intention of cropping no matter what camera I'm using. The goal is usually to crop as little as possible, or not at all.
