"RE: D800 v. D4"

Hi:

The D800 has yet to be announced. Therefore, everything I say about the camera is sheer speculation on my part. Peter, at NikonRumors, has given the D800 rumored specs, including the 36 MP sensor, a 99% certainty. In the past, everything he has predicted with that level of certainty has come true. However, we won’t know until announced.

Why 36MP for the D800 and 16MP for the D4? I believe that 16MP is the new minimum standard for both FX and DX formats. To a pro, I believe that pixel size is more important than pixel quantity (I also believe there will be a D4x in the future.) Why then 36 MP for the D800? It could be that the D800 will become the first true dual camera (FX & DX,) shooting 36MP in FX and 16 MP in DX mode. There might not be a D400 in the future since the D300 and D800 are very similar in size. For a DX camera, the D7K might become the top of the line with the D5100 a more economical alternative. Again, this is only speculation on my part.

Best regards,

Hektor
