Re: A simple poll......24MP or 36MP...

There are situations where 24 or even 12 Mpixels are more than enough, but if I would have only one choice, I will stay by my trusty D800. You can have always less if you don't need the maximum resolution, but you can't have more if it's required.

Two days ago I was out in the wilderness with my D800 and my 70-200 VR. That rabbit apeared after sunset, around 25-30 meters (100feet) from me. The environment was so dim that I had to use iso 3200 and 1/10sec exposure time @f/2.8. I did that photo handheld, but fortunately he was not moving for a few seconds. I am happy with the result after a small post processing. The downsample to 12Mpixel also helped a lot.

On the other hand the D600 seems to be very capable and I'm thinking about the upgrade of my D7000 to this new FX camera.
