I wouldn't say that. You're ignoring the size/weight, and the price factor - a 16MP DX "D400" could easily be 30% cheaper than a 36MP "D800".

Hi Brian:

I do not disagree with you. That is why I said the "D400 or D500." There could be a D400, but I seriously doubt a D500 and beyond (I could be wrong, of course.)

The sensor is probably the most expensive component of a camera. After Sony and Nikon recover the R&D costs of the new 36MP, I have no doubt that in two years, it will come down drastically in price. Furthermore, I cannot see going beyond 36MP. The future sensors might be more sensitive with higher ISO performance and cameras with better Xpeed processors, probably introduced with the single digits pro cameras.

That is the way I see it.

Best regards,

Hektor
