Low-light and shutter lag do not affect image resolution and image resolution is the single most important aspect of image quality. While both of those features do matter, they do not affect image resolution, and that is my point.
If low-light capabilities and shutter lag are more important to you than resolution, then that is your choice. I didn't say and I'm not saying that megapixels should be YOUR most important feature.
Even in the point and shoot world, there are good cameras with XMP resolution, and there are bad cameras with the same resolution. Just because you didn't like the comparison didn't mean it wasn't still valid.
Resolution isn't everything when the data collected by all those extra pixels might be garbage. And I see you entirely ignored the comment about the iPhone4's 5MP camera.
