Yes I've heard a few. The one I hate is "How many megapixels is your camera?" "12?" "My phone has (__). Doesn't that mean it's better?" I usually don't say anything but I feel like saying "I could set my D40 to 1.5 MP and smoke that I Phone." I have n 8X10 I made with a D50 set to 1.5MP. When I show it to people they're amazed when I tell them it's 1.5 MP.
