Ever heard of a "pixel peeper"? These are photographers for whom the most important thing is the megapixel count. What is lost in their obsession, is that increasing pixels doesn't make a greater photo. Pixels are important if you are concerned with resolution and enlarging the image. However, pixel peepers cannot figure out how to take a nice looking or great photo, so they concentrate on the number of pixels instead. Pixels are easily quantifiable, a good photo isn't.
