Considering the dodgy problems of getting the availalble lenses to resolve the sensors.... I'd say 15MP x 3 giving around 30MP bayer equivelent.

So same file size as SD1 except better ISO performance and less strain on lenses.
I figure you could use any lens u want since the pixel pitch is same as SD14/15.

And a Zeiss 21mm should be spectacular on it!

With unsharp corners.....

The Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8 is extremely sharp, even in the corners, even wide open.

It's not perfect: there is a weird "moustache" distortion. But for nature shots you won't notice that, only the extreme sharpness,

I'm sure it has less resolution in the corners than in the centre, but you would probably need a pixel size of 2 microns or so (educated guess...) to clearly be limited by lens resolution in the corners.
