What I find interesting is that all of the discussion above on the 16MP vs 12MP, focuses purely on 'resolution / print sizing' to wit, basically image detail per se, but ignores holistic rendition, which the newer sensors, much greater pixel density, trump the lower MP sensors, in color depth and tonality.

I strongly disagree. From what I have seen, D7100 renders colors somewhat better than any of D7000, D600, D800, D4 or Df, while D7000, D600, D800, D4 and Df are all very similar, and I like color rendering of any of D200, D300, or D700 better. You could say that you can do anything in PP, but some cameras are just better for color right off the bat. We're also talking matters of taste here, so we may not see it the same way.

Fair enough, points taken.

When I started looking more closely at K-3 images ( and some not needing close viewing to see it) , it was very clear.

I have not looked at Pentax. The issue of F-mount is too overwhelming for me to look beyond Nikon.

Understood and agreed, that I too want to keep my lenses and just, at some point, buy another camera body.

So, I too am hoping for an excellent *D400* or * D7200*, albeit the second will likely be a minor (hopefully rather than major) compromise, with upgrades that many here have previously mentioned.

Best Wishes.

And I do believe the science supports this, in that the greater number of pixels are simply able to capture not only more detail, but more tonal variations (light).

But as you say, horses for courses.
