And that was 3+ years ago. As the design spec of the D4 was likely running concurrently with the shipping of the D3s.

I don't disagree that we cannot keep increasing resolution in large jumps, but I think it will continue, and I don't think it's a matter of "not thinking it through".

I believe it could be nearly that simple. Though it is more likely it would be in a D800 body.. similar to the D700/D300 bodies.

Why is that?

I have not seen any kind of evidence that points to this. There is already a 12fps/24mp camera in the market. And it was developed over 2 years ago. And it was developed and shipped by Nikon's sensor partner. I have no doubt in my mind that Nikon can emulate that, and tune it DOWN to 8fps and give us a reasonable D400 product.
