Canon versus Sony 50 Megapixel battle. Is it madness or not?


Both, Canon and Sony are rumored to launch new 50 megapixel Full Frame sensor cameras within the next months. And I guess Nikon will follow the trend and use 50MP (Sony) sensors too. As pointed out by Diglloyd:

50 megapixels vs 36 is 1.18X the linear resolution. In other words, you can make a 42-inch wide print instead of 36-inch wide, all other things being equal, which they most definitely will not be. That’s your best case, barring some other kind of improvement.

So the questions is. Does the extra resolution increase really matter for you?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
