Thank you for your comments.

Yes, I agree on what is possible with 12MP. I am now exploring printing landscapes at 1.2m (47 inches) wide and it works quite well at 12MP (taken with the D3). But I can see that higher resolution would be a benefit. I am trying to get into the market for large printed landscapes for hanging on walls and the viewer is not always 3m or 10ft away. I see that people actually walk right up to the print and view it from up close - the same as I do with paintings. And the ability to go larger with excellent detail, will be quite nice.

Just keep in mind that it will take stellar lenses and technique to get the most out of a higher res sensor.  The sensor is only one of many elements needed to get there if you want fine detail seen up close.
