Maybe we will now have a low megapixel war.
I am all for that! At least now (assuming the rumors are true) it is not the MP per say that will make the difference (16 vs 18) but more the overall product design and all the tech stuff required to squeeze low light performance from these sensor. I think we can only benefit. I think in the current line up (Canon vs Nikon) the approaches were so different that it became a he said she said type of argumentation with two distinct camp.
Now that both company seem to converge toward a low MP high speed camera and a high MP camera, the story will be different...
