Please comment briefly on whether having the largest megapixel count sensor available is important to you and your printing.
Having that high megapixel count is important to me because I want the ability to make large prints.

While I know my camera can deliver large image file sizes for large prints I rarely make prints that size.

Almost all my prints are 5x7 inches or smaller, so megapixel count is not that important to me.
