Re: My only reason. Not a very good reason IMO

Ultra necessary for birding

Everything else is just icing on the cake

I shoot birds, and the megapixels on my camera has nothing to do with it. If you can't get a sharp picture with a camera that has 12-16 or 24 million pixel, you are not going to do it with 100,000 pixels, no matter how much you crop. I won't go into any detail as to what is needed for shooting birds because this is something you first learn to do. My A7iii is enough camera for any situation quite frankly, and the pixel war is a selling tool rather than a benefit.

I get better photos of wildlife with more pixels. Obviously better technique and better lenses helps, but so does more pixels.
