Nathaniel George Weir: So heres the mega pixel count for Nikon cameras.
clueless picture taker: d3200 24.2 Megapixels
amateur: d5100 16.2 Megapixels
semi-pro: d7000 16.2 Megapixels
pro: d300s 12.3 Megapixels
pro: d800 36.3 Megapixels
Very pro: D4 16.2 Megapixels

So why would nikon put an obsurdly large megapixels sensor in a $700 camera? Because Nikon know that people who buy these budget consumer cameras, shoot in the green box mode (auto), and are too stupid to understand that having so many megapixels doesn't make you take better pictures. Most people assume that if you have more megapixels, then your camera is better and you are a better photographer. 95% people that are in the market to buy a d3200 won't print photos that are bigger than 8x10. There's a reason that the D4 has 16 Megapixels. Because real pros that take great pictures don't need a camera that has 16 Megapixels. I have printed a 24x36 print from a 12 Megapixel and the print quality is fine. I doubt that people who will take

I tend to agree with him, but I can answer his question, this is for amateurs and well the more pixels the better is usual trend there, so Nikon will win in this case, but then nobody is talking about processing power and cost of storage for the pictures, even jpg-s are going to be pretty large enough.
