If you do so, you are not allowed to use any other lens - especially no long teles - else than 40 mm ± 10 mm. The same for flash, as no human eyesight can see and fully recognize things happening at 1/20000 sec. I'm sorry, this question you have to answer for yourself - I could do so, but for that kind of work I want to get paid.
At the end of the day we all have human vision.
Yes for industrial or scientific purpose we need even higher resolution, higher sensitivity and speed/frame rate.
Can you show an example where consumer needs more than 10mp
I don't use my cameras to document what my eyes saw, as close as possible to "reality" - I use them to see more. It's like saying any car going faster than 6-10 km/h is not needed as human walking speed on average is just around that speed.
If you're happy with 10-20 MP, stay this way, just don't ask this kind of questions. People who buy more MP sometimes do know what they want, imagine that... and only few of us do technical or scientific work with them. But it's interesting you chose these fields - why did you do so?
