  3. I wonder if enough of the picture could be enlarged to see details in
    one or two raindrops?

    Only on TV, where they don't have to deal with real-world limitations.
    Unless you'd be satisfied with very low levels of detail, then sure.

    One of these days I'm going to have to take the MP-E to a raindrop and
    see what I can get out of it.

    That may be different. I thought he meant enlarge the print not take a
    new photo.

    Given that Jonas probably took that shot with either his D800, or his
    RX1 he should have more than enough crop room to isolate the fat
    central drop (with a few of the surrounding drops for reference)
    without any appreciable loss of IQ.

    It could be interesting at a decent size on screen, or as a print.

    Here's a 100% crop of the image:

    <https://www.dropbox.com/s/xxc0vam2idnd9ia/Screenshot 2014-03-31 07.40.43.png>

    It was shot with the 24MP Sony RX1. If I had used the D800E with a zoom, I
    might have been able to make it larger... Might be interesting to try out
    on a rainy day.
