Why 18? Well, apparently the folks at Canon take the Boss seriously. "18 till I die"...

Makes sense to me. I have been 18 for over 3 decades  ;D

Eighteen megapickles is really a great size.
I think one megapickle is more than enough.

OK guys, I don't care who you are, THAT's funny!!! :)

What you said makes sense. I can understand more why 18MP has been Canon's choice of sensor size.

Canon 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!
