People salivating for more REZ here in the forums.
I am in the commercial (advertising) photography world, shooting and producing for companies like L'Oreal, LVMH, J Walter Thompson, Apple, Google, Amazon, Williams-Sonoma, Sephora, Martha Stewart…etc etc.
No one, and I mean NO ONE is asking for more pixels.
Just my two cents, from commercial experience.
From my commercial experience, the clients, who are not so proficient in technicalities, are not specifically asking for more pixels.
They are just EXPECTING them when they are doing the extreme crops of my photos.
The same photo can get an extreme vertical crop for a billboard that will go on a side of a tall building, and an extreme horizontal crop that will be printed on the side of a bus, a wide building, or a wide street billboard.
The first photo on the left is already a crop of the original file,
so the last thin horizontal photo on the bottom right is an extreme crop of the already cropped file.
The 50 MP of my 5DS sometimes are BARELY enough.
There were occasions that I could be in trouble with less pixels, so I can't wait for the highest possible MP body.
When the larger DOF is needed I just refuse to obsess about the diffraction limits.
When I'm not pixel peeping at 100% and with some judicious sharpening I can get away even with f11 and get great results.
Yes, I could get a Fuji, but for various reasons I prefer Canon (AF, the lenses, form factor, etc, etc...).
So, PLEASE (pretty please!) let me have my 100+ MP Canon body.
I PROMISE, It's existence won't hurt you in any way!!!
This is not addressed directly to @angelisland , but to all people who can't imagine that someone might need a camera like this.
