New megapixel race??

And here I would just be happy for the Nikon Df 16MP sensor in a D7100 body :(

I'd say this is the studio MP race which is mostly trying to corner a segment of the "I want to do MF but don't have £10K spare for the camera so I'll get a high MP DSLR and that will do" mentality.

A good photographer can make excellent images with a 12MP camera !

I have had big books printed with scaned 35mm negs and they look great no need for big MP cameras

I can see 3 kind of people buying this camera

1.Pro's who really need 50MP pictures
2.Those who think the more MP the better the camera is
3.Guys with small p___s that compensate for it with BIG MP cameras

I have a feeling the ratio between No.1 to No.2/3 is going to be 20 to 1
That means lots of stupid guys with small p___ses are going to own this 50MP monster!

4. Guys that buy it so they can list it in their signature on photo forums. :D
That pretty much already covered at No.2/3 LOL
Many who suffer from the "LOOK AT ME" syndrome have small.........tools :)
