24.4 MP Nikon D3X DSLR on the way?

Re: Other concerns?

Hummmm, then we are left with the previously mentioned scenario of the D3X code being there along with what was meant and applicable to the current firmware update. Extra baggage if you will for perhaps marketing purposes or simply missed?

What is most interesting to me is that the designation is on this D3 sensor code. I must defer to your experience and knowledge (as well as others) in this matter, BUT, would it be impossible to have our current D3's turned into D3X's with yet another update? Taken from the 1DsMKIII specs, we have 6.4 µm pixel pitch for roughly 21 megapixels. I wonder what pixel pitch roughly 24MP would be on our current D3 sensors? Without analyzing the sensor itself, would it be known that the D3 sensor was also set up for a smaller pixel pitch?

Science is producing great wonders these days and I would be far removed from saying (based on what we currently know), that such a creation was impossible. If someone had suggested that Nikon was going to release a model with the ISO capabilities we enjoy with the D3, coupled with the speed available and buffer size. I believe we would have read far more negatvie here to the idea than positive. But again, this is from a very non technical viewpoint.
