Nikon 24mp FX DSLR

While there are not enough solid information about this product coming soon, I did come across a few related gossips. One of them is that Nikon was not happy with picture quality from the Sony 24mp FF sensor in their evaluation and rejected for using it in Nikon's products without modifications. The gossip went on to say Sony is making changes to this sensor to suit Nikon's requirements.

Another rumor says prototype of a 24mp FF is floating around in tester's hand.

I am quite convinced a higher mp FF is coming within the next 6 months, regardless the MX is real or not. From what we have seen the D3 and D700, all Nikon has to do is to shrink the pixel size by 33% and giving up the high ISO performance.
