in the end, there is no one universal answer, because each situation, each matrix of viewing distance, print size and subject matter are different. But for 12x18 - yea, not much of a problem at all.

Interpolation may need to be considered.

A lot of PP software interpolates (estimates) missing data when the file contains insufficient detail for a larger size print when viewing at around 15 inches.

With solid blocks of colour; interpolation is extremely successful.

When there is lots of fine detail, perhaps in foliage in a landscape, interpolation is less successful - and generally does not perform as well as using a significantly higher MP camera before viewing a large print from about 15 inches.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
