Wow, I had no idea people actually cared about megapixels. Probably all of the photographers who love megapixels switched to Canon and all who hated switched to Nikon and now the companies are flip flopping.A 7DII/7Dx (or maybe even rename to a 6D:
body would be pro, canon needs a pro crop (enough of this only the 1D series is all thats pro, so it would be a good move to counter nikon who boasts a pro crop)
so picture a crop body, boasting lets say, 28-30MP? 1.6 crop and 28MP would kill any argument of the wildlife togs that need extra reach and crop. Throw in a decent AF, decent ISO and some other bells and whistles and you have an amazing $2000 pro crop body that even FF shooters may consider as a back up/special needs cam.
Do that and toss in a 40+MP full frame (which who knows, this we may see this year) and you put nikon in a real pickle (and who knows, maybe nikon has something in their pipeline that better suits the needs of wedding togs)...
All in all, I am glad nikon did this. If canon was the only real player, canon could just sit back. With nikon putting out cutting edge, it forces canon to work harder, and that benefits all of us!
This would satisfy my photography needs!!! And, 3000 I would pay for it! +1
