Some thoughts about 36 Mp D800' rumour...

Agree ... the D700 is not a competitor to the 5D ...

... So why must a D800 equal a 5D MkIII in MP's?

The D700 has the performance, well very close anyway, to a pro-grade body. As a general purpose body it can do street, photo jouranlism, sports, concerts, etc. A 36 MP sensor would I imagine reduce that performance and therefor its usable range.

For these reasons, I would think Niikon would use a sensor for an all purpose body. I would suspect 24 MP's tops ... in all likelyhood the same sensor that will be in the D4. 36 MP's sounds more like a D4X.
