Now that the D2x is out and flourishing in the hands of so many happy owners I have to wonder now that the 2 big guns of dSLRs are 12 and 16 megapixels where the practical limit is? I can say for myself that I don't want nor need more resolution as its just not needed unless you are printing huge murals, bus billboards etc etc. Even those I think would be fine from a D2x image as they are usually viewed from such a distance that the details of higher megapixels would get lost. I think we are at the threshold of dimishing returns now with these big resolutions. Certainly computers will get faster and memory will get cheaper so that's not necessarily too much of an issue. The things I want to see in new dSLRs at this point are not bigger megapixels - I think 16 mp is the practical limit myself - maybe 22 at the outside of the envelope. Of course with larger megapixels we will have more cropping options and our longer lenses will be less and less necessary for the reach (but we'lll still need them for the good shallower DOF) Some things I want in future cameras: 1) better and lower noise for higher sensitivities 2) more dynamic range 3) bigger and faster buffers 4) built in hard drives or flash memory 5) higher flash sync 6) full frame sensors 7) different size NEF options 8) 10 fps at full sensor size What do you guys think?
