The Truth About Megapixels: Americans Hoard Them
Now here's a poll that won't get you down. In August 2008, PMA (The Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations) reports that almost 80% of digital cameras sold in the US had 8-megapixels or more.

In 2007, DSLRs accounted for just 10.3% of digital cameras sold in the US. We don't have more recent numbers on that fact, but it'd be interesting to see what kind of camera bodies people are housing their megapixels in.
