Will Sony do 18mp and 36mp FF Cameras like Nikon?

Rumors/leaks are looking pretty strong for Nikon's D800/D900, especially about the new sensor sizes they will be using.

I have no idea at this point about future FF development from Sony, but being that Sony supplies many sensors for Nikon, there is at least a chance that Sony could bring similar cameras out (at least with respect to resolution).

Personally I think two FF cameras with two sensors of that resolution would really fulfill user demand in this category. I would be seriously considering/looking at the 18mp model if Sony decide to make one.

I know there are other rumors out there about a 24mp/36mp option, and they may come to pass. However I think 18/36 makes more sense in the lineup. 24mp seems to be more of all round solution vs. the users that 18/36 could target more specifically.
