Hardly, not everyone needs that excessive size to choke up storage space & CPU processing cycles when processing RAW files.  And the arguement 'I can always crop it down' is also BS.  Cropping is done out of desire for better composition, NOT as a necessity for handling file size.

Having photography as a hobby especially when you have the best cameras & lenses is expensive.

A modern PC with enough Ram & storage is peanuts in comparison.

I want Nikon to make the best cameras it can at this level . They have proven they can make a 36MP with excellent image quality if dynamic range & noise had been compromised I would have passed it over & waited for the D600.

If I want smaller file sizes I can use the 1.2 crop =25MP or the DX crop=15MP .
