What continues to amaze me, is the Canon T2i and 60D, and 7D, and a myriad of other Canon cameras have been at 16-18MP for far longer than Nikon and I have not heard one BIT of this hand-wringing or anything else from that user community. When I bought the T2i and took it shooting, I never ONCE thought about it's 18.2 megapixels. I mounted glass from my non-AI 50mm Nikon, to modern L lenses on it, and just had a blast and got great images.

When I got the D7000, it represented a step backwards in resolution for me, and it never bothered me in the least. The metering was more accurate than the T2i and I was getting great images.

This all just seems to be a whole lot of nothing to me. Doesn't matter if the camera is 2 megapixels or 100. If you know how to shoot, you do. If you don't you don't.
