Brian what makes you think that they knew it would be a 36MP sensor. After all they had only rumours to go on? Some - as indicated by posts on here - are having second thoughts for various reasons. The perils of pre ordering? Personally a wait of a couple of months might be more prudent to see what the "experts" think of the performance of the camera after in field testing. As I stated in another post for a couple of years we have been led to believe the the pixel race was over and then Nikon releases a 36MP sensor. This will need "rigorous" testing by independent reviewers before myself and others are tempted. Tempted yourself Brian at this time of posting, or will you be waiting?
