6MP APS-C based on modified D3s sensor (clean ISO1600, usable to ISO12,800)

Sorry but 6 MP isn't sexy anymore nor will it sell next to a 14, 16, 18, or 24 MP SLR these days. So it would be a very limited selling model. Plus if you downsize a 16 MP dSLR image to 6 MP for a comparison, the 16 MP downsized would show sharper, clearer details than the lowly 6 MP dSLR. I've seen it time and time again. Plus you'll have much more resolution when you need more!

4fps

5 cross sensors each placed rule of thirds points, not the useless diamond formation

full manual video control and 1080p
