If 99% of our work goes directly online, why do we still need 35+ Megapixel Cameras?

I feel a bit of a hypocrite with this post as I now tend to use a Nikon D800, which isn't short of a megapixel or two but a local company asked for two out of the hundreds of photographs that I'd taken at their facility over the last couple of years.

The first photograph was taken with a old Nikon D2x and the second, a slightly newer Nikon D3, both of which are only 12mp.

Just goes to show....A) More megapixels might mean a technically better photograph with regard to detail captured etc but can't guarantee a better/more pleasing 'image', which is more subjective and ,

B) 12 megapixels can look great, even when printed at these sizes 👍...
