Well I rest my case. There are no theories involved. This has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. 10MP on a tiny sensor will yield better results then 16MP on the same size sensor. Nice photo's, have a good day...

I don't think 16 MP is necessary, either. However, I think also there are some 16 MP small sensor cameras that do ok at lower ISO's (100 and 200). For me, it's nice to be able to use higher ISO's so I would rather have fewer megapixels and better image quality at ISO 400 to 1600. About seven years ago, there was lots of talk about how seven MP was too much for a point and shoot. Then somehow they figured out how to improve image quality. Sony's new superzoom has 18 megapixel images. Time (and reviews) will tell if the image quality is enough to satisfy most camera buyers.
