Re: 24.4 MP Nikon D3X DSLR on the way?

What are you saying -- that the D3 already has the potential to be 24.4 MP? That each of it's photosites is actually two photosites (grouped together electronically now) that can potentially be separated functionally with a future firmware upgrade? (Didn't Nikon functionally group several individual photosites or something like that in one of the D1 vintage cameras?) Or do you think the firmware we just got for the D3 is planned for use on a future model that has 24.4 Meg photosites?

I guess I'm wondering what you think the significance of what you are pointing out really is...
