I know this can get old but I just wanted to share the moment I realized I had more pixels than I'd likely ever need.

I was doing some standard post processing on a shot of the Haleakala Volcano crater on Maui with the Big Island of Hawaii visible in the background. I zoomed in to 100% to check for sharpening artifacts and realized I could count the observatories on the summit of Mauna Kea nearly 75 miles away! Neither shot is likely to grace my wall but dang, that's some serious resolution.
