All that talk about lenses not being able to handle more than 18MP right now is tech talk with no really solid evidence to back it up. I'm using a 5DMII at 21MP and shooting Macros and Landscapes and all my L-Lenses seem to be holding up just fine. Perfectly fine.
sure 18 MP for a FF sensor is not too much.
21-24 MP would be fine for me too.
but 36MP and above on a FF sensor.... as i wrote makes no sense for me when using small apertures.
i guess canon engineers know it better then forum members and thats why they choose 18MP.
Bottom line is, I've always been annoyed by people screaming for lower megapixel and higher ISO. I'd demand BOTH instead of picking one.
Either way, extremely disappointed by an 18MP 5DMIII.
and i want to travel faster then light.
and i want a sensor that is not affected by lousy physics.
i mean who make this rules for nature anyway?
why do we have a diffraction limit?
i want a FF sensor with 60MP that has a better resolution then what is physical possible at f16.
dissapointed by the law of physics.....
