I agree. I'm tired of Sigma of Sigma trading IQ for absolute resolution. I'd be willing to bet that a 15-20mp FF sensor would produce much better results than what I've seen from the SD1 so far with all its shadow banding and noise at iso 100.

Yes, a 15-20 MP FF sensor would be much better. There are some potential problems.

  1. Cost

  2. Heat

  3. Lenses

There are always technical problems with any new concept or invention. The key is whether you are willing to pay the cost in R&D to solve them (and actually, lowering the pixel density may also help lower the heat).
