So what does the higher res. bring you? Higher res. when you want to print bigger. So, similar at high iSO and same size printing, advantage when printing bigger especially with lower ISO.
Weird how every step up in resolution since 6mp (or probably before that too) triggers the same response from you... :-P
While I understand pixel peeping and I'm sure the manufacturers love pixel peeping as it keeps a certain group of photographers needing the next camera release. However, by now you would think there would be a criteria more relevant to actual us?. Then again, on dpr most people say they don't print, but complain about the images performance of last years model. What do I know?
I have much better iso performance on my 20Mp Pen-F MFT than I did on a 12Mp Rebel 450d APSC. With the 450d I would only use iso 800 in a pinch. I haven't explored the top end of what the pen-f could do, but I comfortably go quite a bit above that without even thinking about it and have printed and mounted good sized images.
Having said that, if the pixel noise is really up that much between 24 and 32Mp, it would seem they're riding on the same technological platform. The question is, is it a real life concern for most of us?
I will add that I'm kind of dumbfounded that Canon would use a different mount for M and R cameras.
