Hypothetical 18MP D800
Feb 14, 2012

Suppose Nikon released a D800 with exactly the same specs except that the sensor is 18MP and has an additional 2fps without the need for the extra battery grip. Of course the resultant RAW files are also correspondingly smaller so the buffer can allow for more data before maxing out.
Otherwise specs are identical and priced the same at $3k USD.

Noise characteristics of the hypothetical 18MP sensor are similar to as if the current 36MP sensor was resampled down to 18MP or a D700 resampled up to 18MP.

Would you prefer such a camera over the real D800?
