    Get better lens & can almost forget about kit lens if u r concerned about pic quality
    Lens also happen to depreciate a lot less than camera body..

    Len-lin-len-leka-len-lin-len.. LenS!!!!

    Yes, the Lenses are what make or break an image, but without a good camera body to appreciate the power of the lenses, makes them useless. No doubt a skilled and abled photographer behind the camera as well.

    But all respect... Lens weighted a higher priority and weightage in my book.

    Lens is more important than MP.

    But the best lens do not guarantee good pictures.

    The most important is still the 12 inches behind the camera - aka YOU.

    Lens, as it never change or upgrade much. Sensor size > megapixel also

    Dxo Lab advice that too high MegiPixel reduce dynamic range.

    That applies to the PnS models too. Generally, I tried to hunt for the l0 MP range with lower pixel density, chances are that's where the better models are (not always of course). Given that these days, the MPs has gone up as high as 14 and density over 40 to 50 million for the latest PnS models, I tend to not even bothered to look at them... I hope manufacturers would stop with the high MP race already (I don't buy it anymore).

    yep... I agree. Megapixels is second to me. Invest in excellent lens most important.

    It's more important to look at pixel density than MP.

    Lower pixel density is generally better.

    Unfortunately I think the trend is that they will cramp up as many pixels in that tiny sensor. Hopefull sensor technology improves....
