    No need to buy macro lens, just crop and can get 2:1 magnification

    I do prints ranging from A1 to A0, and stretch them on frames - inspection distance is rather close sometimes - like newspaper reading distance, so a higher resolution helps in this case. I shoot in ideal conditions so I can fully make use of the sensor resolution most of the time.

    personally; 10MP is enough for me. Not really a printing kind of person; but even if i print my pictures; they are usually de standard 4R sizes save money mah

    Wah...so advanced now. Poor man like me can only afford a 'lousy' 6MP KM5D.

    clog up my processors and load my cards to the max.
    sounds sadist, but it feels gd knowing u captured more stuff in a shot and have more data to work with later on. more room to play with i feel.
    but the irony is, most of the time i can't be bothered -- i just shoot in 5 or 6 MP.

    12Mp is plenty enough for me. But don't mind more (good quality pixels) -- can't lose out to point and shoots lah...

    I have 21MP to shoot at 11MP. Pixel for pixel, due to the Bayer interpolation pattern, it wont resolve at the rated resolution.

    That's right, I don't need it too.
    They don't have it any smaller these days.
