Nikon rumors has a posting that the next DX Nikons will have a 24MP chip (probably the same as in the Sony NEX cameras).
As the D800 has the same pixel density as the D7000, this would indicate that the next FX Nikon could have a sensor in the range of 52MP.
Could this be why the D800 is so "cheap" in comparison to the D3/D4 series, as a new D4X with >50MP will be announced in the near future, with a price tag to match?
The question is what implication this will have for MF.
If my H3D31 is already being made outdated by the D800, what about a CFV-50...?
