    "Of course," say all the Fuji cheerleaders. But a few reviewers, like Eric Kim, make what seems a valid argument that it's really not worth it. The jump from 16 to 24mp isn't as breathtaking as Fuji's pets claim. May borrow a friend's X100F soon. He's underwhelmed so far doesn't see IQ improvement sufficient to warrant the price bump over the T. Anyone able to comment on the F-vs-T issue?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    To be fair though, 16 to 24mp wasn't breathtakingly different for my Nikon DSLRs either.
    I don't imagine it's any different for canon, pentax, or any other manufacturer.
    The difference might be seen more in very large prints and extreme crops.

    I'm quite happy with the images from both my Fuji. Both 16mp, one Bayer and one x-trans.

    I found a lot more detail in the 24mp (XT2/XP2) over the 16mp (XP1/XT1/X100S). In most cases greater detail doesn't make or break an image (the exception being landscape, architectural some macro) ... but a stop of low light noise is very nice and does make a significant difference to me, as I shoot a lot of low light. 24mp at ISO 6400, looks like 16mp at ISO 3200.

    Thanks for the replies. Think I'll shoot my X100T till it conks out or embarrasses me.

    Good plan. Sensors have become trivial. All the current ones are capable great performance. I once posted some images of the same subject made with Nikon D7000 and D7100 and included 100% crops of each. There were slight differences in color rendition probably due to different JPEG engines, but you couldn't really tell them apart in terms of overall image quality.

    I shoot my internet product shots with a 16mp sensor. 1 mp would be more than enough and was when that is what was available. The final images are 500 X 500 pixels. That is 1/4 of a megabyte.

    I think upgrading to get a denser sensor is really pretty silly. It made sense 10 years ago. Today's sensors are all great.
