Re: Nikon and Sony to show Medium Format Cameras at Expo

This is a low-res copy of the D800 full-frame image shot at ISO 2000, f/5.6 1/200 at 200mm (Nikon 70-200 VR). Looking at the tremendous detail (below) that this sensor and glass can capture, I can't imagine I'd ever have need for a medium-format camera/sensor.

I'm not sure I would ever have a need for the resolution of a D800. But people expect the "next model" to out resolve the D800 and IMHO you will see diminishing returns without using the uber $$$ primes like the 200mm F2 or this new $4000 zeiss just announced. Moving to a larger sensor with resolution numbers that a good lens can deal with is probably an easier solution.
