Hi Paul:

I agree with you. However, I believe that the 36MP camera is coming.

When Nikon announced the D700 (FX) while we had the D300 (DX) my thoughts at the time were that the serious or pro-level DX camera will only go as far as the D600, if they even got to that number (the 7 series cameras have been a very good number for Nikon - D70, D700, and D7000 and probable the reason they jumped to the D700 number.) It all depended, imho, on the amount of pixels they could amass in one sensor. Sony just developed the 36MP FX sensor which allows one camera to shoot FX in 36MP and DX in 16MP. Therefore, there is no need to have a serious amateur camera like D400 or D500 shooting 16MP when the rumored D800 can also do it in DX mode.

I knew that this development might be forthcoming and one reason for me to go with the D700 and D7K combo for a long time. I’m not interested, whatsoever, in going beyond 12MP in FX and I view 16MP in DX as 4MP too many. Unfortunately, I’m not Nikon. I have no intention in getting the rumored D800.

Best regards,

Hektor
