Does anyone think OM System has made a 'mistake' sticking with 20 megapixels now we know that Panasonic's new camera will have 25 megapixels?

I'm sure many people are pleased m43 moved on from 12mp and 16mp regardless of whether they required the extra resolution or not. I see Panasonic's move to 25mp as a natural progression rather than a megapixel race.

Will Panasonic have a competitive edge over OM System once they put their 25mp sensor in a G series camera?

I prefer less megapixels not more. I'd like the camera more if it were 12mp but provided more DR instead for instance.

This thread is quite revealing

Now someone is going to write that bigger pixels are better just a matter of time!

DR has to do with sensor not pixel size

Binning does improve DR. So you couldn't be more wrong.

At the expense of resolution so at the same cell size 2x2 small pixels = 1 large pixel therefore benefit is zero.

DR depends on sensor size. in fact no noise sources depend on pixel size but all depend more or less from sensor size and defects

Resolution is the topic of the post. So nice job derailing yet another thread with big sensor full frame hurr durr.

You made two incorrect statements

I prefer less megapixels not more. I'd like the camera more if it were 12mp but provided more DR instead for instance.

There is no relationship between pixel count and DR,

Then you came up with

Binning does improve DR. So you couldn't be more wrong.

This is not incorrect but in this context it is. If you compare the image at 80megapixel with the one at 20 the latter has more DR. However if you compare with a sensor that has the same pixel size of the quad bayer cell the benefit is zero

So in conclusion there is no issue increasing resolution as all the negative you mention do not exist

There are other side effects of course but unrelated to your beliefs

I made no incorrect statement.

They are there try to read them again and do some research it may be beneficial

Having the ability to comprehend is beneficial in online discussions.
