"RE: Why use 24MP?"

I doubt very much Ansel's pictures would be better with a D800, but I'm pretty sure mine are better with my D7000 than any film camera I ever had. I take advantage of the features it offers that allow me to create images I never could before, whether its chimping, cropping, or using LR and other tools for developing. That being said, I doubt a D800 would improve my results much - I don't feel like I've completed using up what the D7000 has to offer yet. Or to put it another way, there's little I want to do that a new DX or FX body would make much easier, let alone "better".

To me, new gear gets bought when I hit a barrier that the current stuff raises. Want to shoot sports indoors? That 3.5-5.6 zoom will make it hard and limiting. Shooting landscapes in the sun? A viewfinder-less camera, regardless of IQ, makes it hard. Want to do discrete candids or street photography? A D4 "works", but you're probably better off with a smaller kit.

Like Stan's friend, I also record music as a hobby. And like my approach to photography, my studio gear is chosen to solve a problem and not to somehow create "the best" setup. Except for guitars. One can never have too many guitars ...
