What advancements in technology are barring a faster higher-resolution D-series camera being introduced? Something like a 9-11fps 22-30 megapixel camera.

I've been stuck with D-series cameras that topped out at 12 megapixel since 2005(D2x). I want to get the D800 but it is too slow for some of the news/sports events I cover. So was the D2x and D2xs.

There are often times horizontals need to be converted to verticals for page layout. The 16 megapixel on the D4 make that sort of cropping an issue.

D4 16MB is a enough to crop. LR4 resize works well. Try it..
