Re: "The cost to stick a high mpix sensor in the D3 frame is negligible"

That cost seems very, very high to me.

Getting a high mp sensor to deliver the low
noise, high IQ goods is very difficult engineering.

A high mp sensor is also very expensive.


I have to respectfully disagree. A high-MP sensor doesn't need high-ISO performance because it will be used as a studio and landscape camera for the most part. I would use a camera like that. You guys who need high-ISO performance already have your cameras, the D3 and to a certain extent, the D700. As far as cost, it shouldn't be much more than the D3 sensor. I would like something in the 20 MP range. If it came in a D700-like body, even better!
