When is enough enough?
Jun 22, 2014

I remember when computers first came out and the pace of improvements in processing speed and RAM were amazing. As much as it pains me to admit it, I was buying a new computer just about every year to keep up with the latest in RAM and processor. Now 17 years later, unless you have specific needs like being a gamer, for most people todays computers are plenty fast and have lots of RAM.

It got me to thinking about digital cameras, particularly mega-pixels? Do you think there will be a point where "enough is enough"? When I first bought my D80 I remember reading "you never need more than 6 MP". Now, I have a D610 with 24 MP. At some point where does the usefulness of more and more mega pixels just plateau and nobody really cares anymore?

I also wonder how long Nikon will continue to carry DX and FX cameras from a manufacturing standpoint, I would have to think that at some point the cost to manufacture DX and FX won't be too terribly different and that eventually there will only be FX.
