The megapixels wars and dynamic range

The megapixels wars and dynamic range, article.

Lessened dynamic range (how much contrast the camera can handle) is one of the reasons I recommend sticking to 10MP for compact cameras, and 12MP for big cameras.

I too think Canon made a mistake by upping megapixel count so dramatically in the 50D and the 7D models. And Nikon stands at a crossroads with their next flagship model: will it disappoint customers who are used to expecting more megapixels in each new camera, or will it suffer the probable low-light capability degrade which comes with a higher MP count?  (The D3s has outstanding, unique low-light capability.)

Thanks to John M's Apple-related articles for the link.
