Re: I don't see an 'x' ahead for this generation.

You're doing it wrong....

If you're going to spend 3K on a body and bog knows how much on lenses, etc., having a computer that chokes on a 36 MP image just says you're not looking at everything as a system.

Hell, even my two year old Mac Book Pro can handle panoramas of 16 bit D800 Raw images without too much problem.   Last night, I was stacking 15 D800 images in layers to make a small video clip.  Not as fast as a Mac Pro, but still plenty responsive.  Still photography has nothing on video or 3D graphics for horsepower needs.  We're in the 21st century -  no need to sweat the little stuff.

As to whether or not any of us need a 50 MP body - that's another question, but the computing power to deal with the images has been there for quite some time.
