36Mpx is a brain-fart turned reality

I'm surprised and slightly amused the Nikon fan-base isn't more honestly disappointed in the decision to pull a nonsensical stunt like this.

24Mpx and 5-6fps, or even 16Mpx, 8fps in the D800 would've been fan-freaking-tastic, but then the D4 (much like the D3 was from D700) would've been threatened.

What we've ended up with are huge files demanding much faster computers, larger much more expensive lenses for pixel peepers and a slower camera.

Well, all that for the very, very few occasions you need to print huge stuff.
