Olympus Declares "No Mas!"; Saying 12 MP is Enough

Olympus is withdrawing from the Megapixel wars, declaring 12 MP to be enough. In a recent interview, SLR planning honcho Akira Watanabe wants to focus instead on improving higher ISO performance, dynamic range and color reproduction. While knowledgeable photographers are applauding this development, it remains to be seen how this will impact Olympus' sales, and if that message can reach a large consumer audience indoctrinated to believe "more pixels is better."
