On the other hand, I am sure Canon won't let Nikon steal the show with the D800's 36MP sensor. I have no doubt they will have a competing model with 40 or more megapixel sensor, perhaps the 3D, or 5DX very shortly?
This is exciting times, even though for me, they are too expensive for me to afford, but glad to see the technology advances. Who knows, in a couple of years, we may see a $1500 full frame 24MP camera.
