New high-resolution king!
Nikon used to reign supreme in the high-res stakes, the D800 rewriting the 35mm format rulebook with its 36.3MP sensor, but its successor, the D810 didn’t add anything in terms of megapixel count. We’d like to see the announcement of a D900 that uses either a 42.4MP Sony image sensor or a new-generation, higher-res sensor that sets the benchmark for full-frame cameras.
We’d like this teamed with Nikon’s 153-point AF system, not only for increased accuracy, but also for the greater spread of AF points across the image frame. An EXPEED 5 image processor would enable faster throughput of high-res images, perhaps coupled with at least one XQD memory card slot. Another good inheritance from the D5 would be a super-highres LCD screen, preferably with a tilt mechanism, plus 4K or even 8K movie-capture.
