To me, it at least seems somewhat
plausible that the D3X might approach (getting close to) 39MP quality

The first is that the linear resolution

OH MY GOD, you people need to take a picture with a 39 MP and LOOK AT
IT!!!

That's all it takes to know what you are talking about... jeez.

No dog in this fight either, I know what's what, don't need to fight
about it.

No need to shout. My comment meant I have neither a D3X or a 39MP back, so it would be a bit hard for me to "take a picture and look at it". The next words I wrote gave you the benefit of the doubt since you have seen the difference. The fact remains that the linear resolution is not that much higher which leaves DR, tonal range, color etc. Does the 16bit back show significantly higher IQ in these respects compared to a 14 bit sensor? I simply suggested that it was not clear to me how it could. Again, I take your word for it, but if you care to post examples that would be interesting.
