Long time photographer here but relatively new to digital. I currently have a Panasonic DMZ-FZ7 (6MP) and want to do mostly B&W for framing in the 8x10 to 11x16 sizes. I would probably use an outside printer for actual prints.
I am considering a new camera...specifically the DMC-G1. (I like Panas). My question is this...
Would I see a great difference in resolution/sharpness in those print sizes going from a 6MP to a 12MP camera? I have been reading the tutorials and other references but I just can't seem to get my head around the whole print size/resolution/image sensor size relationship.
One reference says to take pics at the highest resolution possible and another says I don't need higher resolution for my intended print sizes.
