Thought I'd share this with you.

Not being a rocket scientist (or even a camera engineer), I'm not sure of the full meaning of the details invovled here. However, if this is truly part of the next gen of Nikon DSLR's (and I have no reason to doubt) then I'm looking forward to seeing them. I may yet see a D400!

Can we expect a D4X with a 48 Megapixel sensor now that an Expeed 4 processor will deal efficiently with the huge files?

I've never understood why the single-digit Nikon DSLRs often have a lower pixel count than some of the entry-level and toy cameras.

The reason was that the more limited Mp count allowed faster continuous-shooting speeds and better very-high-ISO performance than the higher-res models. Very much horses for courses. D4 for sports and news photography; D800 for landscapes, etc.

Each new generation of cameras (as distinct frpm minor model upgrades) has improved performance.
Whether the source is informed or a "deliberately accidental release" the link does no more and no less than strongly indicate Nikons the next generation of digital cameras will have improved performance. I would be amazed if they did not Smile
