Please, sign it if you are intersted of this product.

Why only 6MP?

Noise depends only on the sensor size and not on the number of pixels so a 6MP DX camera will have no better high ISO performance than a 24MP DX camera. A larger number of pixels does affect the camera's processing speed and fps however.

6MP certainly isn't enough for me because I normally print at larger sizes and I often need to crop heavily. I could make do with 12MP but 24MP and 6fps would be better.

It's common delusion. Sony NEX-FS100 have 23x13 mm sensor which like D4 in low light, due the large pixel 9.4 micron. Sample for example:

This fact disproves your theory, isn't it?
