Re: 24Mp or 36Mp ??

I have to admit, it would be tempting to have that D800-killer with the ability to still get nice hefty 18MP captures with my crop lenses.

I think I'll go with 24MP, though. It's still more resolution than I ever really use. It will be less unflattering at the pixel level with all my legacy lenses. File size is also a consideration - I'd rather not be bothering with even larger RAW files until I really need to.

When it's time to step up to 36MP and beyond, the lens budget is going to get ugly. Consider that new 55/1.4 Zeiss or the revamped Leica 50mm Summicron. Breathtaking performance - and pricing! (And those are just the normal-range primes.)
