The whole MultiCAM1000 name has been bugging me. I don't claim to be a genius, but assuming the size of the individual AF sensors is the same between D2X and D200 (they can't reall get any smaller? - and also assuming that the CAM designation is based on the total area of the sensors), then:

- for an 11-point system with 1 cross sensor, the absolute minimum name would be MultiCAM1200, most likely it would be called MultiCAM1400.

- for an 11-point system with 3 cross sensors, the absolute minimum name would be MultiCAM1400, most likely it would be called MultiCAM1500.

If anyone else has been geeky enough to play with this, I used 3 equations, do they seem reasonable?

20xy - 9y^2 = 2000 (D2X)
12xy - y^2 = Z (D200 - 1 cross sensor)
14xy - 3y^2 = Z (D200 = 3 cross sensors)
