Are you somehow implying that the high MP file size bothers you? Are you also thinking that disk space / external disk space is expensive or hard to get?In regards to a high MB Canon, I suspect it's mostly vaporware for now. Looks to me like Canon was caught by utter surprise by Nikon's D800. What was Canon corp to do as a response, admit, "uh, we don't have S___ for a high MB camera."? No, to save face and try preventing a sea of defections, they start rumors of "uh, yeah, we're working on one. Yeah, that's it, we're working on one." And when months pass with nothing but words emerging from Canon, they change their tune to "It's new technology... yeah, that's it, that's it, that's why we can't show anybody anything. It's neeewwww technology."Yeah, I guess Canon doesn't have a response for those high amount of MB the D800 file size have because of the high amount of MegaPixels in that camera. Not a bad thing necessarily.

In that case, think again! Disk space is getting bigger and cheaper by the day. It is also getting physically smaller, so don't tell me that extra disk space is a nuisance.
I'd have no problem with storing 36MP files, or even 60MP files for that matter. No problem with processing them either.
