It depends on what you want to use the images for. For the internet, 1mpx is clean and beautiful, and for newspaper or magazine publication, 3mpx is enough. I printed a 30x90cm photobook and they reached 12 mpx.

It also depends on what your subject is & what lens you have available. For small birds I'd generally need more than I have (along with better focusing/sharper optics).

If I don't have to crop the hell out of a shot 16MP has always proved more than plenty & I rarely had problems when I only had 6MP.
