So I think digitising with a 36 Megapixel sensor may be just about adequate for 35mm negs. (We can assume that medium format digital cameras are out of the question, being much too expensive.)

My inclination is to wait for a 36 or more Megapixel camera with no possibility of mirror or shutter shock. See what turns up next year.

I believe the D810 has added an electronic first curtain feature, which should be useful for negative copying.

I tried a service where the lab digitized slides by shooting them with a Micro Nikkor on a Nikon D3x. The files were huge, but the true resolution wasn't that good IMO.
