I have two monitors on my desktop. One where I am reading posts from CR, the other, an Eizo, where I edit my images. Right now I have a portrait of a 76 year old great man, shot with the 1DX and Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4 and I am looking at the image at 200%. This is one that I did not have to crop a single percent. And I was wondering what it would look like with a 50MP/14 stop DR sensor. I know that I argue for a new Canon body, with more resolution and more DR. But looking at this portrait, I wonder if I´m just caught up in a constant chase for more and more and more ...
What I do know is that I am nowhere near pushing the limits of these lenses.
I'm not looking for more MP or more DR, only because I don't think I have a use for the extra pixels, and I don't find problems with exposure that DR will help with.
So I'm generally on the other side of the fence from you. BUT I have no objection to the idea of more MP's or more DR. Its just I don't have use for them so I'm not fussed.
I do worry that some, even many, people get carried away with the "need" for more MP or the "lack" of DR.
Its great to see your post and a considered opinion.
