H is right, the best reason for going anything above say, 6~8mp is so that you can print out REALLY REALLY large images.a 5D mk2 DSLR at 15.5mp or there abouts will allow very large prints. A2~A0 with no worries at all.. I know my 6mp images can be printed nearly 100cm by 70cm.. thats quite a large print.. a 50mp camera could print out extremely large images... I personally do not see the need to print any bigger than the 16803 chip would allow... We're talking a 180x180cm image EASY... thats a BIG print.
