Zilvinas K: People should look back to the fundamentals of what 35mm format is all about. It is fotojournalism, all about compact size and high iso. If you are a seroius studio shooter you go with medium format, 36 MP on 35mm format is irrelevant. If you are a photojournalist, then you choose clearly unsurpassed high iso best performer D700 (dpreview tests clearly show that, you can't beat laws of physics with a size of photosites). If you neither but a pixel peeper with money then D800 is for you. Nikon has clearly lost a logical path of development. Focus on optics not pixels.
35m format is not primarily for the photojournalist. I have made a living shooting advertising for over 25 years, Started with 810 and 45 and hasselblads, very little 35 work. The last 10 years has been 80% canon 35 digital, and only for a select clients do I use a hasselblad hasselblad h4d-60, and that is for trade show booths and truck wraps etc. The 35mm with a high resolution pixel count is a great location advertising format, and a lot of studio work. With a tilt shift lens you can do things that the hasselblad won't. The reason the pros need the pixel count is for the ability to crop and most importantly manipulate the image in post. The more dynamic range and the greater the resolution the better the images looks after the photoshop work. And the more resolution the better the composite, and the easier the composite. 100% of all advertising images go through extensive post work, this is where the pixel count, counts.heplerphoto.com
