I don't get the point of resisting the fact that higher MP sensors produce more detail when cropped over a 16MP sensor cropped the same. It's pretty simple. There is an argument to be made that smaller MP counts provide better noise performance and larger photosites provide better capture, BUT all the 16MP sensors in M4/3 cameras are old, and sensor improvements have voided whatever benefits those 16MP sensors would have had over larger MP-count sensors of the same vintage.I'll let you tell me that; but you should then let me tell you that I have printed huge prints for display, but I have never (until very recently) sent my lab anything other than 3000x2000 jpgs. Whether from a Canon 5D series or a Lumix GX series - my lab produces display-worthy prints. The Italian company that did my albums (when I worked weddings) also never complained and would produce 12x18 albums (that's 18x24 full spread) of excellent quality.
I am not saying the 16MP sensors can't be cropped, nor that they don't produce "pretty good" results.
