Sony just won the megapixel war

Within a year there will be the first 100 MP full frame camera. the prototype will be shown at Photokina this year.

Why does anybody need or want 100 MP? Simple: It effectively quadruples the maximum focal length of any lens because a 1/16 crop is still a very usable 6.25 MP. Imagine f/2.8 zooms of 16-140mm, 24-280mm, and 70-800mm. Sony's longer zooms would extend out to a staggering 18-1000mm and 70-1600mm. Imagine fast primes at unheard of focal lengths: 340mm f/1.4, 540mm f/1.8, 1200mm f/2.8, and 2000mm f/4. Incredible.
