I mean if you are looking at a 13 X 19 print from 6MP vs 12MP from 6" away then you will see a difference between the two ....probably not from a more realistic distance as if it was hanging on a wall. So It has everything to do with your example. Some people are anal and will put thier face right up to the print and scrutinize it. All I meant by !00% crop was if you were to view each in thier native resolution on a computer at 100% then you would see quite a difference in detail captured. Perhaphs I drifted off topic a bit or should have clarified.
