The rumors for a 5D MK III are, as we know, 22mp or thereabouts. However, I detected some subtle comments (hints) from DPR that it might not be the case. If a announcement is coming up in three weeks, there is a outside chance that they know something.
Here are two statements that have me thinking. I doubt that they are intentionally dropping any hints... Or are they?? Something to consider.
1. From the D800 description.
Nikon's newest DSLR offers a significantly more advanced feature set, including a pixel count of 36.3MP that - for now at least - bests the competition by a comfortable margin, and is comparable only with high-end medium format digital equipment.
2. From the article on the 24-70mm MK II, and the 24 & 28mm Primes.
the most interesting thing about these launches is the fact that Canon feels the need to update various full-frame lenses, almost as if something likely to test the quality of its existing versions was in the offing.
