Re: D800 - a dying species

I agree.

Sensor technology is evolving fast.

The market is currently fixated with the notion that a large sensor is always better.

This is nonsense for many, many people.

Even a sensor like the Nikon 1 can produce lovely, deeply colorful A3 sized / 297mm × 420mm prints that 99% of people would think look wonderful.

Even then, most people do not print AT ALL ! They view on an ipad or digital screen - where even less resolution is needed.

As smaller sensors get better - they become "good enough" for the needs of millions of people. Cameras will therefore get much smaller, because that is where the sales are.

Meanwhile, enthusiasts and professionals who actually NEED the big resolution will no doubt continue with bigger camera, although the market will get smaller IMO.
