With the advent of the d7100: Will the next FX camera be around the 56mp mark? Or is that pushing the boat too far out?

Same question came up when the D7000 came out and people wondered whether they could do the same pixel pitch in FX. Turned out they could—the D800.

Perhaps there will be D4x.

I hope they could improve the PDAF. It seems that current PDAF module plus lens AF mechanics can barely keep up with the requirements of 36MP sensor never mind a 54MP one.

We will have to see how well PDAF functions on the D7100. That should be a good indicator.

To a certain degree yes, but not entirely. Shooting wide open FX tend to have more shallow DOF, thus AF errors become more visible (speaking as a pixel peeper )
