Haha wait a minute, do you know something we don't? That Nikon is
working on a competitor to the 5D, i.e. a small-bodied FX camera? At
18MP?

Or were you just guessing it likely will be 18MP?

I think I've been clear. I heard of four FX sensor sizes that were being prototyped: the 12 and 24mp ones I "predicted" seem to have come true, so why wouldn't the 18mp one come true, too? And the most likely place for it in the lineup would be a 5D/A900 competitor. So, no, I'm not really guessing at 18mp, but I AM guessing at what it might be stuck in. It's also possible that Nikon decided against going ahead with the 18mp project, that it was one of the options for the D3x.
