I could only tell the difference in certain lighting situations and because I'm used to staring at 5D images. It's only when you get nit-picky (read: pixel-peeping) or have perfect, perfect vision (which I'm spoiled with) that you can tell a huge difference.
Hey, I had a couple quick questions for you:

I, like Tino had mentioned, am very new to photography and was curious to know if an SLR is really needed, to get shots like you posted?

A couple weeks ago I spent some time looking into various SLR cameras, but was disappointed by the lower megapixels they offered, when compared to basic point and shoots.

You'll have to pardon my ignorance, but is the megapixel size/amount what matters the most, or is it the lens, etc?

Thank you,
