Awesome... on a typical 4 day job I shoot 10,000 photos. So at 50mp each... it's a cluster f¥¢k.
I'll stick with 1Ds3 and 1Dx.
+1 I am with ya!
Remember a time when on the audio side we had those Boomboxes with ever increasing Watts numbers plastered in big fonts on the speakers themselves? 10W, 20W, 45W, "100000000" W
While the mass market was being cluster f¥¢ked (to use your term), the audiophiles opted for Denon and other high-end brands with lower "apparent" specs but true "Hi-fidelity" and listening experience. This is why even today the Bose table top, simple as it is, costs more than a Sony audio receiver you can pick up at the department store.
1DX is worth every penny. I liken the the need for 50MP on a 35mm sensor to those who bought into the boomboxes with "100W" from each speaker. Mind you, I will buy it if the price is right cuz I can use one when I am doing yard work for easy listening
. But if I am really in need for such high MP on my camera and committed to landscapes, and willing to pay a premium price, I'll be looking at Medium formats.
Marketing wise, 50MP+ on a small 35mm format makes no sense at least for the near future. It comes down to the number of takers with that kinda money, whom we have to believe, will conveniently not consider medium format at that kinda money. Non starter.
