Somebody posted that it would be good to have a set of standard tests that can objectively grade the image quality in a variety of conditions from a production sample unit. That would focus the manufacturers on image quality instead of just numbers.
OK as a 'savvy person', where the 'N86 12MP' produced a demonstratively better image than the N86 8MP in all conditions, you would choose the 8MP?
