Why the pixel numbers?
2

Regarding the forthcoming multi pixel Canon R, I'm yet again wondering about the benefits.

For someone printing at no more than A3, is having a multi million-pixel camera of any advantage at all? Other than enabling heavier cropping?

Compared with my 25 mp RP sensor, will a 50+ mp sensor show more detail in the printed image?

Will noise be finer and so less offensive?

Will contrast changes be smoother?

If none of the above, why are camera companies bringing out such crowded sensors?
