The other interesting thing to note is that both Canon and Nikon have reduced the number of megapixels of their new 1Dx and D4 from 21 to 16 and 24 to 16 respectively.

I meant to include this in my last comment, but forgot - sorry.

Not quite right. The Nikon D4 is the successor to the D3s which had 12Mp. (The D3x was an earlier aberration intended purely for studio work that had a Sony 24Mp sensor. The D4 does not follow that line).

Aaaah. Missed that, but its still interesting that neither top of the range camera has gone up into the stratosphere with their pixel count.

That is because they have struck a balance between resolution, speed (in terms of frame rate) and low noise at high ISO. It all depends where your requirements lie.
