Megapixels: Should you care?
Mark Layman

Here’s a really good video by Tony Northrup (an excellent photographer and photography author) about the relationships between megapixels, lens, print sizes, and print viewing distance.

It’s a little technical and there’s a bit of math (the geek in me really likes that kind of stuff), but the general conclusions drawn are very understandable and useful. It confirms my own experience over the past year as I have acquired some better quality lens, including fixed length prime lens, and have seen the results of those lens on my existing camera bodies.

I highly recommend you find 15 minutes sometime soon and listen to this whole video.
