Is the number of MP's not a good metric for choosing a camera?

I shoot with a 20mp 1DX2 and 50mp 5dsr, megapixels are definitely not the most important thing.

Ive had the 5dsr for three years now and it’s a great camera but for the past year and a half been using the 1DX2 more and more, the files from it are amazing.

I shoot wildlife so my needs are a little different from yours but I’m covered for both lowlight fast moving to slow lots of light shooting.

For your needs I would say the 5D4 or the R if you want to go mirrorless would be the best option. With the release of the new R body’s the 5D4 price has gone down to a great deal and would be my recommendation.

30mp is plenty to do 20x30” prints, I’ve done them with 20mp and if you are just posting images online you’re covered for that also.
