  • 18 Mp x 2 as Fuji did or real 36 Mp ?

"real mp" ? Those are not real mp, those are interpolated pixels from a bayer pattern. We could always hope for a Foveon sensor though, but in this case I am pretty sure its just stock Sony. Just smaller sensels in a bayer pattern.

  • 36 Mp FX for 300.000 yen? How will recent D3x buyers feel? I know, same story happened with D1x owners when D70 appeared for 1/4th of the price, but still...

Not to mention D2x to D300 ... Well, indeed there is no way around "consuming your own children". Otherwise, your competition will.

  • 36Mp FX means 16Mp DX, no intention by Nikon for a pro DX cam anymore?

If you are happy shooting with a masked out viewfinder (best case scenario, or just frame lines worst case) and a larger body at a slower frame rate. Then you are sort of right...
