Yes smaller sizes that are easier to store and process.

For landscapes, I use CS5 to stitch, the large 36 mpx's were a bit much...

I might pick one up down the pike, maybe a 800e, but for now hopefully the D4 will do...

For a pro though, D3s/D4 make a little more sense simply because workflow will be easier, which is why I'm now starting to lean away from the D800 (which also has LCD issues now apparently??!!) Maybe I'll get a D800 for $2199 in 4 years!!

The "LCD issue" seems like a non issue for anyone who shoots RAW. Seriously, I've never used the LCD to judge color or white balance ever. Maybe for focus and exposure. I'll leave color issues to the editing station. Though if one is a jpg shooter, I could see this as being an issue for sure. I guess it would also be an issue for video shooters (yikes)

When you speak of work flow being "easier" for a D3s or D4, are you specifically speaking of the smaller files and quicker processing? Just curious.
