I think I made the jump from a 10mp 1/2.3" sensor to a 24mp APC sensor. The file size difference is huge but is it worth it? Yes. Though I had to buy a whole new 64bit computer, harddrive and SD card just to be able to work with this new data.
Sometimes I use the extra resolution to crop-in but it's not something I practice unless there is nothing else that can be done with the image. Cropping is work, unless you enjoy editing all your pictures.
With a low resolution and small sensor you get a cheaper-smaller camera but you also get less detail. If you look back at my older pictures you will see the problems that result from low detail. If you take a picture with a cellphone its pretty much dead off the bat - nothng else to it - the pixels you see are the pixels you get. Cropping into my older pictures would rarely reveal anything sharp. Better tools are more expensive but they give better results.
