I think the 16 MP of the D4 and D7000 is more than enough for me and my work.
I shoot my D800 at Best Quality, FX, Medium size, Fine JPEG.
5520x3680 = 20.3 MegaPixels and prints 18.4x12.3 inches at 300 dpi according to Nikon.

But I would shoot 5:4 format Medium size 16.95 MP if my second camera was a D4 instead of a D600,
because I never had a problem cropping a really good 12 MP D3 image from Landscape to Portrait and still printing 17x25.
