At this point DX camera's will just be cropping away detail, taking it out of our hands. If a DX shooter does not like the high MP's, they could just shoot in crop mode. There will still be more expensive lenses etc. The very best quality will come from FX camera's as is the case now and cropping could be done in a high MP FX camera either in camera on the computer as needed. I obviously have no crystal ball, and it will be interesting to see what happens.
