Re: 48 mp

I recently reviewed a bunch of my images made with D800E and Hasselblad H3DII-39.  These were all 20 x 30 inch prints from Costco.  Even at this relatively small size, the Hassey 39mp pictures had a slight edge over the D800E.  Now what I really want is for Sony to release a 48mp chip for either a full-frame Nikon DSLR or Sony DSLT camera.  Actually I would slightly prefer it in the Sony mount because of the superior Sony/Leitz lenses, especially the wonderful Sony 70-400mm lens.  48mp would give approximately the same pixel density as the current 24 mp APS-C cameras (Nex-7, A99, etc), which would be great for telephoto shots.

I really don't understand what you are getting at Douglas... Is it that you think your H3DII had the edge because of the 39 vs. 36mpx? Also what was the lenses in both cameras and what was the Iso shot? I say this because my Imacon 528c on Contax 645 which is only 22mpx when shot in single shot, it destroys D39II at 50 Iso... both with their dedicated 120macro fitted, while it is just better from my D800E at 100Iso for the same width of frame with my 105VR fitted... I just don't find the comparison base in your post... if you are kind to explain... I also don't understand how res was induced into your post and what it relates too.... I mean why do you assume that a 48mp sensor would be any better than a 36 one or a 24 one or a 16 one... A 20x30 inch print can be great (presumed that it is a "perfect" shot) from only 3mp....
