As above, is the difference between 6mp and 8mp that much, when shooting, printing etc...?

Is 300 x 300 dpi the max anyway?
mr jones said:print resolution is a completely different onion to DPI.
300dpi in an image is pretty much a standard for the likes off magazines and publications, most cameras will output at 72dpi (web resolution) unless you tell the raw software to do otherwise.
resolution does go higher than 300dpi but for most applications this isnt required
the way the numbers are calculated means that it is not a staight-line function.Captain Benefit said:is the difference between 6mp and 8mp that much,
richard plumb said:printer dpi doesn't really bear any relation to the original image. They may say 'five squillion dots per inch' but that has to cover them having to mix lots of only 3 or 6 coloured dots to make the original dots. So one dot of your original image will be many dots of printer ink.
