If you want to enlarge pics to poster size or publish pics in magazines the high pixel count is needed.
IMO high quality glass is the best investment.
I like to simply capture a moment or try to capture a feeling or try to shoot something small that most people never see.
I will not lay next to an ant hill for 2 days and I will not spend 3 hours a day for 3 days trying to get the perfect "clouds moving across the horizon at sunset" shots.
For the money I spent, the Nikon D80 with the 16/85 wide angle zoom works very well for what I shoot.
