All said, I'll be disappointed if the next advance in technology does not take us over 30MP. About a year ago I flirted with the notion of going medium format, and I decided against as I wanted to see if a competitor to the Lecia S2 appeared. So far the market is still theirs. The quality of the CMOS and CCD plates appears to be merging so hopefully we'll see some of that in the new releases in 2012. While I may be the last one standing, my vote goes for a large frame, very high MP camera with fewer gismos attached for aesthetic simplicity and quality results.
