    in that sense i suppose it is reasonable to have higher MPs to go with those improvements.

    plus, it is not really about technicalities. consumers tend to want to pick higher MPs, regardless of quality. this happens in the camera industry for quite a while.

    • I gave you several disadvantages of higher MPs. Yes, consumer may choose higher pixels. This is what I say SONY is trying to fool consumers. However, the consumer will be disappointed after purchase eventually. There is a report that smartphones are causing the market for standalone gadgets such as cameras, camcorders and GPS devices to shrink, falling 5.9 percent overall during the holiday season in the US. You know that new cameras, camcorders have higher MPs than the smartphones. Apparently higher MPs do not create sales today.
