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.
