Re: Just to be clear ...and 10MP real resolution isn't that good for later editing

Reading the in-depth reviews of Micro 2/3 and APS DSLR lenses, few of them can resolve more than a real 10MPx. I have a Sigma f/2.8 short zoom which has a true resolution of around 9MPx on a 24MPx sensor, and it's quite satisfactory. What matters more than nominal pixels is the transfer function; it's no good having 40 million pixels if the inter-pixel transfer function is less than a third of a stop, because you aren't really resolving anything.

Personally I don't like what Apple, Google and Samsung do in post processing; all I want is a picture I can work on, and an exposure system that plonks the image down nicely over the dynamic range of the sensor.
