<p>I have no doubt the big megapixel DSLRs are in the pipeline, but so far things are pointing to the professional market instead of the consumer market.</p>

Of course, what would a consumer, or prosumer for that matter need 24+MP for? let alone 30 or 50? Prosumer camera MPs have gone down over the past few years, not up (G series, etc)...as have several pro bodies obviously other than 1Dx. It would be really interesting to see Canon introduce a professional studio camera though it would be difficult to unseat MF in that space, no? Are we looking at more of a 1Ds replacement/upgrade?
My question, as I'm not an optics expert, is once you get into that realm of 30+ (if not before), how many current EF lenses are going to be able to leverage that sensor fully?
