Have you ever wondered what it would be like using the 100meg fuji ? well i just printed a 36 inch print (cropped section) from both the 100 meg and the 20 meg em12 and at normal veiwing distance i couldnt see any extra sharpness or detail at 300 mm . Now got out the macro lens and you could see more detail on the 100 meg image . not as much as i would of thought but was easily visible. I always wondered why do portrait photogs want mF ? it must be for the rendering because its definatly not for detail on typical print sizes.


To tell you the truth 100meg is an overkill. It taxes the computer and creates monstrous file sizes. If I had it my way I stay with a 21mp indefinitely and thats for cropping because I don't do printing. I haven't in years.
