...that is, it featured a 46 MP sensor (sans banding -- one would hope that Canon could work that out by now), a more efficient microlens layer so that significantly less light is lost at apertures wider than f/2 (see here: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Publications/DxOMark-Insights/F-stop-blues ), 7D AF, and 1920x1080p HD video with binning (not line skipping), way improved Auto ISO, would that be "enough"?

Keep in mind that the D800 will still have superior DR (at base ISO) and that the resolution advantage of 46 MP over 36 MP would be at most 15% (when using a very sharp lens).

Please write "Yes", "No", "Almost", or "Maybe" in the subject line, with explanation in the body (if desired).
