The main reason I like the higher mega pixels is for increased sharpness

Well a micro shake on the 42Mpx sensor is unforgiving for the result of an image where on the 24Mpx sensor you can still use the image.

Well, to be fair, if the image - micro shake and all - would still have been usable with a 24Mpx sensor, then downscaling the 42Mpx image to 24Mpx should give you an equivalent result.

It's only when you want to display or print (or crop etc) to reveal the finer detail of the high res image that tiny amounts of shake become a concern.

So saying that sharpness increases with the Mpx is only dependant of the operator. Now if like md you're more often on a tripod than handheld of course you won't have any problem

Agreed - assuming the tripod is stable and there is little wind etc. etc. (but that's a whole other discussion!). ; )
